Perhaps there is something in the configuration of your server (server.xml),
or its default webapp settings (conf/web.xml), or the configuration of your
webapp (WEB-INF/web.xml) that is causing the session cookie to be set as a
secure cookie.

If you're only responding to HTTPS, then you probably don't need to set the
Secure flag on the cookie anyway.  I would bet that if you can find a way to
get tomcat not to set that flag, your problem may go away.
