Bug in version 2.1.1?

Newbie question/problem:

I have been using a Rails flash-style way of putting temporary messages in my templates. Here's the code for my FlashBucket class:

class FlashBucket {
   * write a new variable ('message' by default) to FlashBucket with a value
   function writeFlash($var = 'message', $val) {
      $_SESSION[$var] = $val;
      return TRUE;
      * read and empty variable from FlashBucket ('message' by default)
   function readFlash($var = 'message') {   
      $result = $_SESSION[$var];
      return $result;

The FlashBucket class methods are called from my page controllers. When I upgraded to v2.1.1 on my development machine, this no longer works. The flash persists. When I reverted to v2.0.2, it worked again.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
