icedtea gcjwebplugin fails to send cookie in http header

Bug #306449 reported by EliotBlennerhassett
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
icedtea-gcjwebplugin (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu 8.04.1 Firefox 3.0.4 icedtea-gcjwebplugin 1.0-0ubuntu8

Running TWiki, and using this plugin (java applet).
and TemplateLogin (cookie base authentication).

When I have the gcj based plugin installed, the applet is not able to save files back to the wiki page, because it does not include the authentication cookie in its HTTP post header.

If I remove the gcj plugin, and replace it with sun-java6-plugin package, then the applet works fine. Its post headers do include the cookie.

So my naive conclusion is that somewhere in the interface between FF and the plugin there is something different (wrong) with gcj plugin.

Not a direct fix but in lucid/10.04 this bug is not present.

As I don't use 8.04 any more, I'd be happy if this bug was closed.
