Getting back to the original issue, Thomas seems to be right when he says that if the 
cookie path is set to /foo, the browser will return it also for URLs such as /foobar and 
 From the Cookie RFCs, i gather that the cookie path is taken as a *prefix*, and /foo is a

prefix of /foobar.

Now the issue is : who is setting the cookie path ?  if it is the application, and if this

is a concern, then I would suggest to fix the application.
