What version of PHP are you running?

I don't know why this warning is appearing; AFAIK PmWiki doesn't 
rely on the side effect being given in the warning.  At any rate,
you should be able to set session.bug_compat_warn to off.  But I
am curious to know which version of PHP is generating this error.
