Could you try followings?
1. provide a simple Servlet to test and its test-case as subclass
   of ServletTestCase (not CactusStrutsTestCase)
2. run a test by using Cactus's ServletTestRunner

   Above two are to make the situation simple.
   I think its better for you to find out a working situation, first.

3. use plain HTTP and monitor NW traffics
   Cactus's form-based authentication is expectiong following sequence:
   Step 1: C->S connect to secured ServletRedirector to start authentication
	GET /target-app/ServletRedirectorSecure HTTP/1.1
   Step 2: S->C redirect to (or return) the login form page
	HTT/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
	set-cookie: ....
	Location: http://localhost:8080/target-app/login.jsp
   Step 3: C->S send credentials to server
	POST /target-app/j_session_check HTTP/1.1
	Cookie: ....
   Step 4: S->C redirect to the protected resource
	HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
   Step 5: C->S start to test as normal ServletRedirector does
	GET /target-app/ServletRedirectorSecure?Cactus_Service=... HTTP/1.1
	Cookie: ....

   The set-cookie header field in the Step 2 is important.
   If the one to set JSESSIONID is not exists,
   that may causes "missing cookie name".

If one uses ServletTestRunner, cactus.contextURL of cactus.properties
will not be used, but the servlet set the property by following code:
	"http://" + theRequest.getServerName() + ":"
	+ theRequest.getServerPort()
	+ theRequest.getContextPath()

This is a case I know, but it maybe not yours, since you are using
JUnitEE servlet. I feel strange....
