I have seen this problem too, only with Mozilla. Seems Mozilla stored 
session variables in cache. Haven't looked into this in a while, so the 
problem may be resolved in later versions of Mozilla. The original 
poster might try emptying cache, history etc before closing down Mozilla 
and see if the session varible disappears.

The damage, of course, is already done. The easiest workaround would 
probably be to time-limit your variables.
