>Environment:
SunOS latimes10.su-colo.bbnplanet.com 5.6 Generic_105181-08 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise
>Description:
Responses which contain a set-cookie should not be cached by a proxy server 
(quoting from http://home.netscape.com/newsref/std/cookie_spec.html :
 When caching HTTP, as a proxy server might do, the Set-cookie response header should never
be cached. )

>How-To-Repeat:

>Fix:
In file porxy_cache.c, at approximately line 880:

after the line

	ap_table_get(r->headers_in, "Authorization") != NULL ||

add the line

	ap_table_get(resp_hdrs, "Set-Cookie") != NULL ||
