cookies are sent to the server.

free of bug in 1.0, 1.1
bug started in 1.2, still in 1.3a
Comment 2 Marc Quinton 2003-01-20 22:57:55 PST
you can now make some tests online :

clic on the 2 server and verify that cookies are the same or different.

may be I change apache httpd.conf (ServerName)

This might be WONTFIX, based on Bug 142803, although I personally disagree w/
the interpretation, I've been on cookie qa for about 10 minutes.

I'll research this some more.

This is invalid.  See bug 142803, which references the relevant specifications
(and the fact that we and IE both follow those specifications at this point is
nice too).
