This isn't a browser-specific thing as far as I can see - I've tested with
Mozilla and IE.

Apache 1.3.29, JK2 2.0.2, Tomcat 4.1.29 all conspire (even with the
request.tomcatAuthentication=false setting in jk2.properties) to somehow pass on
the appropriate headers, yet the remoteUser just isn't available to applications
- in my case, that's a Cocoon 2.1.3 application, but the Cocoon stuff doesn't
seem to be at fault.

However, it all works fine in Tomcat 4.1.27, so I should imagine that something
changed between Tomcat releases and it all stopped working. Either that or the
Cocoon developers misunderstood some subtle aspect of the servlet specification,
but that doesn't seem likely to me.
