The pgsql table horde_sessionhandler creates the column session_data as a 
text data type.  Imp inserts null characters in part of the session which 
end up being read back incorrectly, causing the session in-progress to be 

I wrote a quick and dirty patch to convert the session to hex before 
inserting it into the table in write(), and from hex after reading from 
the table in read().

The patch is attached to bug #2789.  With CVS 
horde/lib/Horde/SessionHandler/pgsql.php and this patch, pgsql sessions
