Session and flash now working in IE6


#1

Hi all,

I noticed that my sessions and flashes are not working in IE6 (no
problem with safari or firefox). I did a <%= debug session %> and
indeed IE6 is showing session[:new_session] to be true all the time.
This means a new session is created for every request.

An old version of the same application is running on the same server
under a different subdomain. In this sessions are working as expected
in the same browser (so browser cookie settings are probably not the
problem).

No changes have been made to the default rails session handling
configuration.

Why is the session not persisted? Where should I starts looking for
errors?

Many thanks in advance for any pointers!

Nicky

The error is in the subdomain which included an underscore.
Underscores in subdomains apparently cause such errors is IE. Now
there is an hour I am never getting back.
