Hi Mel, 

I looked at that and I couldn't reproduce it - are you sure you have the 
right configuration ( i.e. SessionIdGenerator included in server.xml ) ?

getNewSession is calling setState( STATE_NEW ), that calls the
sessionState callback that allows modules to initialize the new session
object - and SessionIdGenerator is setting the id ( using whatever

I can't understand what's wrong - my only guess is that SessionIdGenerator
is not included.

I didn't had too much time this weekend ( to restart the nightly tests ),
but I hope to resolve those issues soon.
