Bug #15555 is related to this. I actually have a use case:

- Admin installs $WEBAPPLICATION
- forgets to disable cookies in Context; $WEBAPPLICATION always encodes
  sessions in URL
- users start using $WEBAPPLICATION
- Admin remembers after a week
- lots of users have cookies hanging around in their browsers and cannot log in
  any more because there is always a stale JSESSIONID cookie being sent by
  the browser and examined by Tomcat

We have been bitten by this bug several times.

Bye, Tino.

PS: Tested with Tomcat 4.1.24
