NO, the problem is that the SessionID, when switching from HTTP to HTTPS remains
the same!!!

I believe this is a serious security issue and should be dealt with.

The attack scenario again:

1) A HTTP page assigns a SessionID

2) Man-in-the-Middle notices the SessionID

3) Upon switch to HTTPS, the SesssionID remains the same. After login to HTTPS
secure area the man-in-the-middle is able access all HTTPS pages just using the
SessionID obtained.
