"session_start()" warning when using perch_template() with content containing as...

I'm getting the following error when using perch_template() to process some text-based content containing a [cms:asset 9999] shortcode. The problem does not occur if the content does not contain a shortcode.

Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent in C:\xampp\htdocs\miraviva\perch\core\lib\PerchSession.class.php on line 27

Here's the line that creates the problem:

$country_body = perch_template('content/textile.html', array( 'text' => $country['country_body'] ), true);

The template it's referring to is a very simple one:

<perch:content id="text" type="textarea" label="Text" textile="true" />

Any ideas?

What happens before the problematic line?

In short - a lot. There's plenty output to the screen before this occurs.

I should have mentioned - I'm in the process of migrating a long-lived Perch v2 site to Perch v3. The problem didn't occur in Perch v2.

Thanks for your assistance, Drew.

As a workaround, I've moved the problematic line to the top of the page (before the headers are sent) and it works fine, as it should.

Just a little difference between Perch v2 and v3, I guess.

Thanks for your help.
