I worked with Sharky on this and the problem was with a conflict of
BDB libraries between python and apache.  This was confirmed with a
script that simulated session saving which worked fine from the
command line, but broke via apache.  It turned out to be a bad
symbolic link for a shared library.  After fixing the symlink
everything worked fine.
