I did read the thread carefully, and nowhere was it explained why this
error message was being emitted:

SEVERE: Exception in the filter chain
javax.servlet.ServletException: #{identity.login}:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Control character in cookie value,
consider BASE64 encoding your value

I never saw any JSP code with the text "#{identity.login}" in it anywhere.

Well, you may have solved /a/ problem, but you either didn't solve the
originally-reported one, or there were really two problems originally
reported. It's not clear to me if they are a single issue or two.
