I would agree that neither implementation is buggy -- it is entirely legal for a
servlet container to avoid letting an application corrupt its interna data
structures.  It's too bad that the current Tomcat developers care more about
performance than they care about reliability.

If you aren't going to change it back to the 4.1 implementation (with
synchronization locks around the accesses), please take my name out of the
@author tag for org.apache.catalina.session.StandardSession -- this code does
*not* represent anything I wish to be associated with.
