Subject: WWW Form Bug Report: "Multiple Set-Cookie headers" on Solaris 2.x

Operating system: Solaris 2.x, version: 
Version of Apache Used: 1.0.3
Extra Modules used: 
URL exhibiting problem: 

The server inappropriately munges the Set-Cookie
headers when more than one is sent by a program. For
instance, a program that sends:
Content-type: text/html
Set-Cookie: foo=bar; expires=<future-date>
Set-Cookie: biz=bam; expires=<future-date>
Will be sent as:
HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Date: <date>
Server: Apache/1.0.3
Content-type: text/html
Set-Cookie: foo=bar; expires=<future-date>, biz=bam; expires=<future-date>
This is invalid according to the Netscape cookie
specs, and the Netscape browser version 2.x and 
3.x will only store the first cookie (i.e. foo=bar).
