Package: php5
Version: 5.4.4-14+deb7u3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
when I set my own session.save_path in php.ini, old session files do not
get deleted. Even if the cronjob for doing this reads the lifetime from
php.ini, it does not read the save_path from there. This leads to tons of
files in a directory, while the admin might assume that PHP cleans them

Either allow the cronjob to read in the individual setting or give a
severe warning for anybody who changes this setting, please.
