Changing the following in /etc/php5/conf.d/suhosin.ini fixed the problem.

; Transparent Encryption Options
;suhosin.session.encrypt = on    <-- default
suhosin.session.encrypt = off

I'm not absolutely certain of the cause, and can't verify my hypothesis 
as I no longer have a Debian 5 system to test, but, that said...

Apparently the php5 binary shipped w/ Debian 5 did not have the suhosin 
module compiled into it, thus the 'on' setting above was simply ignored, 
and I did not have the RC login redirection problem.  Debian 6 php5 does 
have suhosin compiled in

PHP 5.3.3-7+squeeze1 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Mar 18 2011 17:22:52)
Copyright (c) 1997-2009 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend Technologies
     with Suhosin v0.9.32.1, Copyright (c) 2007-2010, by SektionEins GmbH

and thus the 'on' setting above was in effect, causing the login 
redirection problem.  I'm surprised that the Debian teams allowed this 
situation to occur.  If my hypothesis is correct, not just mine, but 
every Debian 6 RC 0.3.1 server was down after the distribution upgrade, 
with no relevant log entries whatsoever, an no warnings in documentation 
prior to the upgrade.

Apparently I'm the only Debian+RC user on the planet?
