I'm dealing with a site that serves invalid Cookies in various kind of  
ways. In some cases the Cookie values contain "," characters, which  
really confuses the Header/Cookie parsers and eventually leads to  
IllegalArgumentExceptions thrown by the Cookie constructor:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cookie name may not be blank
   at org.apache.commons.httpclient.Cookie.<init>(Cookie.java:142)
   at  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.cookie.CookieSpecBase.parse(CookieSpecBase 
.java:192)
   at  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.cookie.CookieSpecBase.parse(CookieSpecBase 
.java:256)
   at  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpMethodBase.processResponseHeaders(Http 
MethodBase.java:1826)
   at  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpMethodBase.readResponse(HttpMethodBase 
.java:1939)
   at  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpMethodBase.processRequest(HttpMethodBa 
se.java:2631)
   at  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpMethodBase.execute(HttpMethodBase.java 
:1085)
   at  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpClient.executeMethod(HttpClient.java:6 
74)
   at  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpClient.executeMethod(HttpClient.java:5 
29)
   at my.code.Test.getHttp(Test.java:114)

What bothers me, is that these IllegalArgumentExceptions are never  
caught in the HttpClient code, making it effectivily impossible to  
handle these responses.
