Apparently so...

Ah, thanks!  I didn't realise that this was optional behaviour for PHP
(I don't use it myself).  I had assumed that since the submitter filed
the bug as severity grave and didn't give any instructions for
reproducing the bug that things would fail in the default setup (looking
at the PHP4 bug reports seemed to suggest that shared memory was enabled
by default).  

Setting the save_handler to mm does reproduce the problem - I'm
downgrading the bug since this is non-default behaviour and the fact
that nobody has reported this previously seems to suggest it's not that
