I just installed GNU remotecontrol with latest SVN onto a new box. Had trouble with setting up first user. Trouble was the index.php did not refresh with new user info after setting up user in admin.php. I used the pull-down to select another language, and all populated as expected in index.php.

Since Travis probably has the closest perspective right now on the impact memory variables with his software thermostat effort, I am assigning this ticket to him.

Travis, please edit the cod as you suggested and post to SVN...after you are convinced there are no side effects from this change happening in the web server log. Please email me if you run into any new problems/concerns/thoughts.

index.php is currently setting up the session:

@ $currentUser = new User($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']);
$_SESSION['User'] = $currentUser;

Navigating to admin.php before going to index.php with an empty session causes:

Notice: Undefined index: User in /usr/local/share/remotecontrol/lib/Common.php on line 50

-Monitoring the error log to ensure there are no side effects.
-Even though it may "appear" to work, moving things like session initialization, require_once statements, etc. to other process points can create some strange side effects or cause some underlying PHP errors.
