Are you running this under a virtual host? I discovered that setting
the cookie lines broke PHPTest which was running under a different
domain name than what I had put in PHP.ini. Here's the session section
from my php.ini file. With this config, I haven't run into anything
yet that doesn't work.

; Handler used to store/retrieve data.
session.save_handler = files

; Argument passed to save_handler.  In the case of files, this is the path
; where data files are stored. Note: Windows users have to change this 
; variable in order to use PHP's session functions.
session.save_path = F:\PHP\tmp

; Whether to use cookies.
session.use_cookies = 1

; This option enables administrators to make their users invulnerable to 
; attacks which involve passing session ids in URLs; defaults to 0.
; session.use_only_cookies = 1

; Name of the session (used as cookie name). = PHPSESSID

; Initialize session on request startup.
session.auto_start = 0

; Lifetime in seconds of cookie or, if 0, until browser is restarted.
session.cookie_lifetime = 0

; The path for which the cookie is valid.
session.cookie_path = /

; The domain for which the cookie is valid.
session.cookie_domain =

; Handler used to serialize data.  php is the standard serializer of PHP.
session.serialize_handler = php
