Subject fix for bug 558, getUserPrincipal returns wrong user
Date Sat, 09 Dec 2000 04:46:38 GMT
I just entered bug 558, but the bug tool ignored the text in the
"how to reproduce" and "workaround" fields, which included my suggested
bug fix:

How to reproduce:
Access the jsp/security/protected/index.jsp
example then access it again as a different user.
getRemoteUser and getUserPrincipal won't match for the 2nd request.

To fix the bug:
In the initRequest() method of tomcat/core/
add the line
principal = null;
in with everything else that gets reset.
