Summary0004560: Session size might exceed column limit when using database for session storage
DescriptionWhen using database to store sessions ($this->blAdodbSessionHandler=true), the size of the session data might easily exceed the limit of the column "session_data". This column has the type "TEXT", which can hold up to 65.535 characters. Depending on the configuration of the shop and the modules that are used, the session data can become larger. Just entering the shop and putting one article into the basket leads to a session size of around 13.500 chars (in our configuration).

When the session data limit is exceeded, the behaviour of the shop is unpredictable.

Default column type should be "MEDIUMTEXT" to have a limit of 16.777.215 characters.
