I did check with web developer, and firecookie. However as it turns out 
after doing a little deeper check it became apparent that it's probably 
the domain name that's messing with stuff. So the cookies are set just 
not for the current domain, but suffixed with forum and beta(like you 
write). Problem is that my domain contains an æ it's something like this 
: domæne.dk however there are trouble with this so forexample firefox 
recognises it as domæne.dk but IE6 does xn--domne-e6a.dk. I've setup 
Apache to use the xn-domne-e6a.dk, can I have two domains, so that I 
also use the one with æ, it's just a matter of adding the other name as 
an server alias right, I guess Apache http supports æ ø å etc?

I've tried todo this:

(beta)
    ProxyPassReverseCookiePath / 
/tomcatcontex/                                                                

    ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain /tomcatcontex beta.domæne.dk
(forum)
    ProxyPassReverseCookiePath /jforum-2.1.8 
/                                                                        
    ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain /jforum-2.1.8 beta.domæne.dk          

But obviously it does not work, both cookie domains are set to:
beta.xn--trningslog-e6a.dk (the tomcat cookie)
forum.xn--trningslog-e6a.dk (the forum cookie)

It looks like the domain path are being used, is only /.

Yes exactly.

I am aware of this, but thanks for reminding.
