Hey all, we use hardware loadbalancers that connect to apache to see if the server is still ok. It does not login.

I just realised these do actually create sessions, causing problems with garbage collection :(


select ip,count(ip) from session group by ip order by count desc;

                  ip                    | count

Are connects without login supposed to create a session? If so, why?  This is with a relatively recent 0.7 from svn.
