Thanks Oliver,

Your reply prompted me to look at the relevant code which is exactly 
where I need to start I believe. Now I know that mod_proxy_balancer does 
inspect the URL looking for a session id parameter which is the most 
important thing.

I still don't really understand why it isn't working. Are you saying 
that mod_proxy_balancer sees only lowercase URL parameter names? So that 
'SID' won't work but 'sid' will? Do you know why this is?

If it is not too inconvenient, can you send your patch details so that I 
can see exactly what change you made in mod_proxy_balancer.c?

Thanks for your help,
- Sam
