I guess its because your forwarding the context wholesale. I'd guess the
sesion is new within that given context, and because your effectively
recreating the context when you forward in that manner, it still counts as
new. I use sendRedirect  instead and this works fine - what do you loose my
using sendRedirect rather than forwarding?
