    Sorry, my mistake. I misread it. But then, why does it have an incorrect value once the session expires? All of my colleagues see the same behaviour, in that they always see the session being empty, but they never get the right value from is_expired once the session has expired.

    Always, we create the sessions using:

    $session = CGI::Session->new('driver:mysql',$query,{ DataSource => +'dbi:mysql:profitorius', User => 'rejbyers', Password => 'Didr39Qcab' }); $session->expire("5m");

    Obviously with different DB credentials and timeout value. And we check it always with something like:

    $session = CGI::Session->load('driver:mysql',$query,{ DataSource => + 'dbi:mysql:profitorius', User => 'rejbyers', Password => 'Didr39Qcab' }); my $extest = $session->is_expired;

    Again, obviously, with different DB credentials. As we always add session parameters, we seem to be able to rely on the session being empty to know the session expired, but we have never been able to get a correct value from is_expired once a session has actually expired. It always returns false to us, when we use it in an actual CGI script. Why?

    Thanks.
