> From the mailing list :
> While fiddling around with mod_pyhon 3.1.3 MarshalCookies and IE6, I
> noticed that once a cookie got to a certain size, it would stop being
> recognized as a valid Marshal cookie.  I suspect (although I don't know
> for sure -- I'm not currently in a position to build mod_python) the
> problem is the following:
> In MarshalCookie's "def __str__(self):" method, base64.encodestring() is
> used to encode the cookie value.  Unfortunately, base64.encodestring()
> adds newline characters to the byte stream every 76th byte, which seem
> to cause the problem.  The terminal newline is stripped, but none of the
> internal ones.
> I would suggest that the line:
> m = base64.encodestring(marshal.dumps(self.value))[:-1]
> be replaced by something like:
> m = base64.encodestring(marshal.dumps(self.value))
> m = "".join(m.split("\n"))
> Regards, Steve McAdams
