fyi, I got the sysadmin at the web hosting company involved. He  
changed "sessioncookiepath" in the database table "mdl_config" from / 
tmp to /, and things started working correctly.  That doesn't make a  
lot of sense to me (/tmp seems to be the proper place to put temporary  
files, such as those that handle sessions), but that was the fix.

Thanks again for your help...
