[php-maint] Bug#648823: php5-common: default session.gc_maxlifetime of 1440 is not practical for mediawiki

Package: php5-common
Version: 5.2.17-0.dotdeb.0
Severity: normal

The php5 cronjob evauates the the php.ini files and /usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime and then (by default) deletes sessions after 24 mins. 

In mediawiki and possibly other applications editing a page can easily take longer than 24 mins and espsecially in the case of mediawiki this leads to a complete loss of the edit.
