Subject: Apache::Session::Store::File::materialize appends to existing serialized value
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 557b
Doing multiple restore() on a single session without any save() causes the serialized value to keep growing. It may be possible that newly read values aren't used by the Storable serializer as it seems to be parse the first value. It is also possible Our code does this to reread the session in small critical sections: $self->make_unsynced(); $self->acquire_read_lock(); $self->restore(); // do critical section $self->release_read_lock(); Clearing the $session->{serialized} before reading the file in Apache::Session::File::Store fixes the problem.
From: ianburrell [...]
Here is a patch which clears the serialized value before reading.
