This is one (of several) reasons why it is NOT recommended to store  
session data in databases.  There is absolutely no reason why you  
shouldn't be using file-based sessions if Horde/IMP is running on a  
single machine.

It's a bit trickier if running Horde/IMP on a cluster, but databases  
are still not the preferred way of storing this data.
