phpmyadmin session_write_close() error?

After upgrding xampp 1.6.1, phpmyadmin shows session_write_close() error?

Warning: session_write_close() [function.session-write-close]: The session id contains invalid characters, valid characters are only a-z, A-Z and 0-9 in /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/index.php on line 44

Warning: session_write_close() [function.session-write-close]: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/opt/lampp/tmp) in /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/index.php on line 44

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/index.php:44) in /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/index.php on line 101

Thus I'd tried ;;

chown -R nobody:nobody opt/lampp/tmp
chown -R 777 opt/lampp/tmp

But still the session error continues

Is this not a permission problem?

service mysql stop
remove all files belonging to mysql user (daemon/nobody)
service mysql start

sometimes it helps to use the latest pma version (2.11.5 atm), delete all p* cookies and empty the browser cache (to get rid of outdated .js files).
