Problems writing session variables

Can anyone tell me why I can't successfully write out session variables.

I'm test in a Windows AMP environment. I doublechecked the session folder in
php.ini and I'm successfully creating and deleting the sessions themselves.
When I look at the variables in the session file after I execute the code
below, all I see is:

!ses_user|


The code:

<?php

session_start();

loginuser();

function loginuser()
{

   global $_POST;
   global $_SESSION;

   $userid = $_POST['userid'];
   $passwd = $_POST['passwd'];

   //I validate user against DB here, if valid I write out session variables

   $_SESSION['ses_user'] = $userid;
   $_SESSION['ses_access'] = odbc_result($rsSecurity,'AccessType');
   $_SESSION['ses_orgtype'] = odbc_result($rsSecurity,'OrgType');
   $_SESSION['ses_orgid'] = odbc_result($rsSecurity,'OrgID');

}


Thanks,

Dan
