Subject Cookies, space and MSIE
Date Sat, 18 Jan 2003 01:01:13 GMT
It seems MSIE on mac ( aparently both 9 and X ) is failing
to parse the Cookie if tomcat is used in secure mode ( with
SSL enabled ). ( it doesn't matter on which platform you run
tomcat - the browser is broken ).

I added the extra space - and the problem went away.

Remy - should we backport this to 4.1 ( and 4.0 ) ? I made 
the change in 5.0, and did the tests with a patched 4.1.

The problem is:
 Path=/foo;Secure  -> fails
 Path=/foo; Secure -> works

The examples in the Netscape specification of the Cookie include
space after ; - and don't explicitely say the space is optional.
