I don't think that is a safe statement -- a great deal of the benefit of 
using Robot* is that there is no session assigned and you don't have
the hit on disk writing and storage.

I guess I still don't understand the problem. Are you saying that
even when the UserAgent is seen as a robot, we are putting session ids

WRT the id= thing, you can remove that alias from the equation by
editing ICROOT/etc/vars.
