Subject RE: tomcat session issue

If you have two browser windows open they both use the same session in the
servlet engine.

If you use session state to determine navigation etc. then you would get
unpredictable results.

I'm not aware of any session bugs in Tomcat 3.2.3 that would
explain this.  It is more likely to be some sort of user
error.  Can't tell if browser caching would be involvled.
Perhaps you could post some simplified code that demonstrates
the problem.
