Hmmm. Unfortunately I couldn't follow the thread earlier.

As far as I know the problem is the following:

A semicolon is used to separate the jsessionid in case you are using URL 
encoded sessions. As far as I remember the AJP connnector does *not* 
recognize %3Bjsessionid. So if you are using URL encoded sessions, 
semicolons need to be decoded before sending to Tomcat, or Tomcat needs 
a patch to recognize %3bjsessionid in the AJP connector.

Of you don't use URL encoded sessions, you can choose the correct 
forward option in mod_jk.

Concerning mod_proxy_ajp: I'm not sure, if it is a bug. Since %3B and 
semicolon should be euivalent, my question is: do you get the correct 
path info if you use Tomcat http connector directly and use semicolon 
instead of %3B?
