Now that's interesting. I can fix that easy enough but I'm curious as to
the reason for having a "global" session ID instead of a local one. I
always found it advantageous that (in all likelyhood) you couldn't use
the session ID for a file interchangeably with the session ID of a
socket. And I must say that I find the idea of exposing what essentially
amounts to a "VM secret" to other plugins quite peculiar.
Can somebody remind what the intent of that change was? I'm sure there
must've been some reason for it but I think I've missed the discussion
of that feature.
