ZF-10161: Checking the namespace metadata for expired ones, can produce notice about undefined index.

If we have namespace with expirationSeconds setted to 1, and expirationHops to 100, the notice will be produced by _processStartupMetadataGlobal method at Zend/Session.php on line 536. (Expiration values can be more realistic, but I took them for the faster problem detection.)

See the code below:

foreach ($_SESSION['__ZF'] as $namespace => $namespace_metadata) {

// Expire Namespace by Time (ENT)
if (isset($namespace_metadata['ENT']) && ($namespace_metadata['ENT'] > 0) && (time() > $namespace_metadata['ENT']) ) {

// Expire Namespace by Global Hop (ENGH)
if (isset($namespace_metadata['ENGH']) && $namespace_metadata['ENGH'] >= 1) {

    if ($_SESSION['__ZF'][$namespace]['ENGH'] === 0) {
        if (isset($_SESSION[$namespace])) {
            parent::$_expiringData[$namespace] = $_SESSION[$namespace];

In the '// Expire Namespace by Time (ENT)' namespace can be unsetted from the $_SESSION, but $namespace_metadata is left without changes. So the second block '// Expire Namespace by Global Hop (ENGH)' will try to execute same logic as in previous, but the Notice will be generated on the line: $_SESSION['__ZF'][$namespace]['ENGH']--; because $_SESSION variable has no longer the $namespace key.
