You know that problem that you can't enable cookies without risking
throwing your clients (and server) into an endless loop of redirects
when said clients have their cookies disabled/disallowed? Here's a first
stab at addressing the issue, details logs below. It's a VisualWorks
fileout, but it's a really tiny set of 3 changes, so I was hoping for a
peer review of some sorts to see if that even makes sense ;)


----- Cookies Disabled Without Fixes -----

curl -L http://localhost:7777/online
curl: (47) Maximum (50) redirects followed
