Easy man, computers are stupidly formal so it's quite easy to clash names
these days. They can't capture your intention so disambiguation is over our

This is official: I'm stupid, 
What happens is that my application name is 'officious' too, and I'm using
#useSessionCookie, so, Seaside is storing session id in 'officious'
cookie... and that's why WACookie#value returns always a string
"suspiciously seemed" to a session id. 

I'm ashamed...

Can you gather a bit more information? Can you check if WACookieTest 
works ('Cookies' under /seaside/tests/alltests)? Can you inspect the
cookies dictionary in the request (both WARequest and nativeRequest)?
