Interesting. Would you expect to see the session cookie when you call the getCookies() method
then or not?

Since my last mail, I've made some progress and can get isNew() to return false if I comment
out the last few lines of the servlet method which forward to a jsp page:

ServletContext servletContext = getServletConfig().getServletContext();
RequestDispatcher requestDispatcher = servletContext.getRequestDispatcher("/myapp/jsp/hello.jsp");
requestDispatcher.forward(request, response);

Why would this screw up my session?
