You don't need the session_register function calls. Take another read  
of the manual page, http://us.php.net/session_register, there is a  
warning not to mix session_register and $_SESSION -- eliminating the  
session_register calls should fix your problem.

Also note that if register_globals is turned off, this method does not  
work properly. Since register_globals is off by default as of PHP 4.2,  
and will not exist in PHP 6 -- I suggest that you start working  
towards not relying on register_globals settings.
