Package: php5

Version: 5.6.20+dfsg-0+deb8u1

/usr/lib/php5/sessionclean doesn't take /etc/php5/*/conf.d into account.

So when you set a different value for the session.gc_maxlifetime in a 
conf.d/ in file it's not taken into account and the session are purged.

There is an easily quickfix just set export PHP_INI_SCAN_DIR before 
executing "php5"
