I can't refer to the JIRA bug report at the moment as JIRA is broken,
but you might want to look at some of my comments if you can find the
bug report related to psp and form objects. It talks about the session
object in there as well and one of the issues I pointed out is whether
when the PSP object doesn't create the session in the first place,
should it assume that it should save the session. With the way you
have made the change, the PSP object will save the session even if
it didn't create it in the first place. Am not sure if this is the
appropriate thing to do or not.
