Symptoms:

When you have an aliases directory e,g,

Alias /foo /tmp/foo

html files do not generate server cookies. Only after
hitting a non-html files such as shtml, is a server cookie
generated.

A work around is to create a symbolic link so that
the directory tree is connected.

Lets assume that the root directory is defined to be
/htdocs, then in htdocs you would create a symbolic
link to /foo.
