Could someone who is experiencing this problem try two simple experiments
and report back (turning off cookies in your browser)?

(1) Explicitly use port 80 on the URL


(2) Modify your Apache config to have Apache listen on some other port
     (say 7070) and try that:


If the "default port" issue is the culprit, then you should get URLs
rewritten in both of these cases.

NOTE!!!!!  In order for the session ids to actually *work*, you also need to
have the MOD_REWRITE stuff set up in your httpd.conf file.  But having that
by itself is not enough if rewriting never happens in the first place, which
is what we're trying to fix here.
