Bug Description

if the variable session.gc_maxlifetime is defined in /etc/php5/*/conf.d/*.ini the cronjob in /etc/cron.d/php5
will ignore the value and use the default value of 1440.

To fix ist, use this diff for /usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime

Slightly better patch now in debian git.

Scans all relevant SAPI's configurations and if not found (or php5 not installed), it will scan /etc/php5/*/php.ini and /etc/php5/conf.d/*.ini
