First post to this list.  I'm running Nitro .50 as installed from the
Gems posted here recently.

When I set a session variable via

@context.session[:MYVAR] = str

it is always nil on subsequent requests.

I've also tried dropping the @context but still nil.

Is there any direction on how to properly use session variables?

try just:

session[:MYVAL] = str

As I said, i tried that but it is still nil.  The session does not seem
to persist between page hits.

Setting the cookies hash directly doesn't work either.

Could this have something to do with using YUI on the client side?  I
wouldn't think it would overwrite any cookies though.

One more thing.  If I set the cookie via YUI in the browser, I can read
it in the cookies property server-side.  However, nothing set in the
cookies property ever makes it to the client.
