Unfortunately I do not have any of this information. 

I did spend alot of time trying to trouble-shoot this. I assumed all along 
that there was a problem with the pubcookie software, but that turned out 
to be false. I put debug stuff in the pubcookie code, plus some in the 
apache code, to verify the creation and disappearance of the session 
cookies. I googled and eventually found and applied Brett's patch.
