In light of our current decision to drop the session ID "set" filter, I'm 
taking another look at these patches and Richard's comment to simply drop 
patch 2/3 and apply 1/3 and 3/3.

Richard, as I mentioned earlier, perhaps not clearly enough, I think we should 
put a check in audit_set_loginuid() to skip the (int)-1 value from appearing 
in session_id during normal operation.  In other words, roll/reset the value 
in session_id one value early so we don't run into problems with the (int)-1 
unset sentinel value.
