Description Christian Welzel 2003-05-31 22:42:23 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.1.2)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
Compiler:          gcc 3.2.x 
OS:          Linux

konqueror does not overwrite an old cookie with the new value,
but it appends the new cookie to the list of cookies of the domain.
so i have two cookies with the same name but different values
and ending times... normaly it should set the new value and time
for the cookie...
i have spoken to several people and all of them agree.

Hello, 
 
You will need to be more specific. kcookiejar properly replaces old cookies with 
a newer ones based on the first paragraph in section 4.3.3 of RFC 2109 or 
section 3.3.3 of RFC 2965. Can you provide a link where you are seeing this 
problem ? Or alternatively a the cookie header(s) you are using to test this ?  
 
Regards, 
Dawit A.

Currently i can not reproduce this, but it happend several times...
i thought about making a screenshot last time, but i decided to give it
another try and now the problem doesnt come back :(
Here is the code i use on my site www.wh9.tu-dresden.de:

    /* the skin choice from get */
    if(isset($_GET['xskin'])) {
        if(!preg_match("/^\w+$/i", $_GET['xskin'])) 
		die('Bad skin name from GET variable!');
        $_SESSION['skin'] = $_GET['xskin'];
        setcookie("XSkin", $_SESSION['skin'], time()+2592000); // one month
        unset($_GET['xskin']);
    }

As you can see you can set the prefered skin by using the paramter "xskin".

Me too. Using Debian/i386 unstable KDE 3.1.2 GCC 3.3.

Happens sometimes when trying to login to http://www.unihelp.de using the saved 
cookie.

P.S.: Removing the cookie(s) in ~/.kde/share/apps/kcookiejar/cookies, logging 
in again helps for some days.

I tried this again with your site and no matter what I do I cannot duplicate the problem. Please feel free to re-open this report if the problem still occurs in the current stable 3.1.x or 3.2 beta releases. Thanks for the report.
