I never realized that the session storage for the aur is using a
custom method, and storing the data in a mysql table.

I 'noticed' that there were almost a million rows in the aur session
table, from back to early 2005.
I deleted all sessions that were older than 3 months, and optimized the table.

Perhaps the aur code could:
1) use php sessions
2) provide a cleanup script to purge old sessions after some interval.
