Cookie handling causes problems for  IE and Opera

                 Key: INFRA-1438
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: MoinMoin
            Reporter: Sebb
            Priority: Minor

Possible solutions:
- ignore cookie when password is provided
- change cookie to include trailing /

I'm not particularly familiar with Python, but I may be able to provide patches ...
