Symptoms

Customer encountered a strange error when login an OpenSSO protected site with Chrome. During login wiith Firefox or IE, no issue is seen.

In the OpenSSO "/debug/CoreSystem log" -

Received RequestSet XML :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<RequestSet vers="1.0" svcid="com.iplanet.am.naming" reqid="439">
<Request><![CDATA[
<NamingRequest vers="3.0" reqid="25" sessid="AQIC5wM2LY4SfczVbbxIaElmwtVRiLDYgq7nJAQHspOMb7Q.*AAJTSQACMDE.*">
<GetNamingProfile>
</GetNamingProfile>
</NamingRequest>]]>
</Request>
</RequestSet>



With Chrome, please note the "sessid" in NamingRequest becomes male-formed.
