any news about swfupload & sessions?

Hi all,

I'm up to rewrite my swfupload code as a plugin (as far as possible).

My actual solution to the old problem with session handling and flash
was to ignore it, send an upload_request to the server, get back some
secret code and then upload the file to an action where session/
authentication
is disabled.
Works fine so far, but the normal way would be better.

There are many solutions, but all of them seem to fail with one
or another browser or server.
Has anybody a link to a page that covers that problem in a way
that works reliably on all mayor browsers?

this works for me.

gives the correct session id, tested with firefox and safari and ie7.
