This is supposed to work and AFAIK it does with the proper config. The
quickest way to decipher what is happening is to get a packet capture [1]
with tcpdump/Ethereal on the webserver and send it to me directly. Also,

1) Container and any "adapters" or modjk, etc.
2) Server os
3) Client browser

and post the filter section of your web.xml. We really need ALL of this
information or there will be a log of guessing.
