You can't know when Apache will decide it's time for a new process. You can't know when the apache process gets re-configured or restarted. You can't know when another unrelated session to the same application will begin. You would be much better off to look at some of the session management tools that work with mod_python and handle the problem properly. I use Albatross (http://www.object-craft.com.au/projects/albatross/) but that does a whole heap more than just session management. Others have recommended PSO (http://www.scriptfoundry.com/modules/pso/). Greg.
