CDbHttpSession not working with Session ID > 32 characters #2192

I've posted the problem I had in the forum here:

Basically my session IDs are longer than the CHAR(32) specified in CDbHttpSession and hence I had problems using it until I figured it out.

The settings responsible in the php.ini appear to be

session.hash_bits_per_character = 5
session.hash_function = sha256

That means using 'autoCreateSessionTable=true' will not work at all in my case as the CHAR(32) is hardcoded in

protected function createSessionTable($db,$tableName)

Also would be good if in the documentation there was a hint about this as this was all new to me since I haven't paid much attention to session ids up until now.
