Hi, In my rails app I'm using sessions to store information about the users shopping cart. Everything seems to be working fine but there is one strange thing that I cannot figure out. It seems that any request (for /index.html for example) is causing a new cookie/session ID to be created. So if I clear my cookies and then visit my site's homepage I then have a new cookie. Is this normal behavior? Would you expect rails to generate a cookie even though no action is being called that would create a new cookie? Thanks in advance, Joe

Rails requires cookies to work at all... the cookie stores a hash referencing the session which is what rails uses internally to provide various services. So yea... this is normal behavior.
