Yeah, I have to take responsibility for this bug. Apologies to all. Fans
of irony will appreciate that I unwittingly introduced this new bug
while solving a long-standing cookie header parsing bug! Ouch...

Thanks, Cliff, for posting the note on

Manni and I managed to break mod_usertrack, yes.  Unfortunately while we
do have a fairly large test suite, it didn't include the default case
for mod_usertrack (doh!).  If you just put in a "SetCookie Apache"
directive, it will work again.

This is 2.0.x as well as 1.3.x most recent releases btw.  Sigh.

There is already a bugdb entry and proposed patch for this.
