Could you enable the debugging for Session handling (i.e. dbgSession in
EMBPERL_DEBUG). Then you should see the session ids in the log file. The
interesting question would be if the session id for one person (which is
send, received or generated) changes.

The other possible issue is that the cookie is not set, because of a path or
domain name issue. Did you set EMBPERL_COOKIE_PATH to / and in case you
change host names or port numbers during one session also
