yes thanks, that's why I renamed the email: "[Tomcat 4] HTTP 1.0 connector 
Cookie bug"!

I originally tried the HTTP 1.0 connector because there was (and maybe 
still is) a page on either the Cocoon or Tomcat site indicating that 
Cocoon would run faster with this connector.

When I tried it the difference was like night and day.  Unfortunately I 
didn't have time to  investigate why, but I took the existence of a 
message on the site as an indication that it was a known issue probably 
without an easy workaround.

I don't think so, but could you elaborate a little on why this makes a 
difference - or point me to some documentation that mentions this?  Does 
HTTP 1.1 carry out DNS lookups that don't happen with HTTP 1.0?  What 
would represent a complex DNS setting?

My apologies if I'm asking something obvious, HTTP specs are not my strong
