As I said I had same problems with 3.1.4 before. Maybe the problem was because
of the 2.4.1 python. I upgraded twice. Yesterday to some snapshot
from apache.org, which was svn checkout around end of June,
according to Nikolas it was missing just some recent cookies patches.

Today have installed python-2.3.4 and picked up current svn and posted
the testhandler outputs. Have to install few more packages into the python2.3
tree to play more with my testcases. Sorry for all the confusion.

Well, you have my sources so you know what all you can reproduce.
