When using MSIE4, and using the Session interface, the browser has a habit of sending lines
like the following in the HTTP request header :-

Cookie: MC=ID=12345; JServSessionId=<session_num>

JServUtil.parseCookieHeader(String) incorrectly parses these into name/value pairs such as
MC=ID; 12345=JServSessionId; <session_num>=null.
Run the commonly-found SessionServlet with Internet Explorer 4.
I have applied a patch to JServUtil in CVS, which I have found solves the problem satisfactorily.
