Subject Re: Session problem
Date Mon, 27 Aug 2007 11:23:36 GMT
How are you starting a new browser from this *same* machine?  If you are
pressing Ctrl-N New Window, this is your problem!  This will appear to be
two browsers, when actually it is two browser "windows" over the same
session!  You must start a second (3rd, 4th, ...) browser the way you
started the first if you truly want unique session ids.
