As a performance test I tried putting up a largish perl program as a 
fastcgi.  Its based around Lincoln Stein's CGI package, and uses 
cookies to keep state.

However the state keeping is faling apart.  If a cookie is passed in, 
it appears to get to the program through the environment (tested by 
dumping the environment).  However cookie data generated in the 
header passed out by the script does not appear to be "taken" by the 
browser - so may not be getting there at all!

Is this a FAQ, has anyone seen this before...?
