No, I understand the concept of the cron job. I do agree that allowing PHP/Apache to enumerate the session directory is a bad idea. Seems like PHP's session garbage collection is lacking a bit.  Surely they could devise a means of garbage collection that doesn't relay on scanning a directory.

I see that bug #590485 fixes the cron job so I can use conf.d to override.  So I could just override the global defaults by having my sugarcrm package install a config file fragment.

Thanks for taking the time to look at this!
