This is a problem that happened to my machine - we got it fixed by using the
IP address, but now we know what the cause was - thought I'd share this info
incase anyone else out there is experiencing difficulties with IE5.5 + and
sessions and not being stored.

> The problem had to do with the name of the machine --> for example
> tkd_webapp (there was an underscore in the machine name).  I know that
> sounds crazy, but check out the link below.
> Session variables did not persist between requests after a security patch
> for IE was installed.
> There is a knowledge base article on the problem for those that are
> interested.

> Changing the machine name fixed the problem.
> Crazy!!
