Never mind :)  The problem was my
session.referer_check     = 1
setting in php.ini.

PHP considers one of my own domains foreign and was killing the session for that 
reason (without mentioning this in the php error log, though i did get a few 
"PHP Warning:  Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the 
current setting of session.save_path is correct (/tmp) in Unknown on line 0").

Wow this stuff can be time-consuming.
