IllegalArgumentException during adding a cookie





------- Additional Comments From remm@apache.org  2004-06-10 20:36 -------
The fatal flaw of your reasoning is that by allowing (almost) anything in the
value, you can create a cookie value which would create a malformed multiline
header. This invalidates the whole thing. An oversight of the specification,
undoubtedly.

If you want some arcane and/or obscure issue fixed, please provide:
1) a clean and well tested patch
2) your rationale for why there's a bug
Otherwise, I recommend not wasting your time, and please do not reopen this
report (esp since WONTFIX is the appropriate answer).
