Yes, those are the ones

Actually I've never had any problems while composing a message. But I'm
asking myself the same question about the User-Agent header change.

We all try :-) As these errors are pretty random and not everyone is
affected its pretty difficult to find the real reason.

Call it mystery or coincidence - but since I installed the latest 0.7-svn
and testing both versions parallel, I didn't have the Session Invalid error
anymore on my "real" 0.7.2 installation. Still waiting to catch it sooner
