[ic] Odd https/redirect behavior

I have had one Interchange site site set up for a few months, and 
recently set up a second one on the same system.  Things went 
swimmingly until I tried to access the admin pages.

On the site that works, if I go to 
http://www.site1.com/cgi-bin/shop/admin I get redirected to 
https://www.readerscatalog.com/cgi-bin/shop/admin/login.html to log in, 
and I stay in https the entire time I'm using the admin pages.

On the new site I don't get redirected to https, and if I put in the 
https part manually I get redirected back to http on the next page 
load.  But https *is* working;  I can manually go to 
https://www.site2.com/cgi-bin/shop/admin/login.html and it works just 

I have verified that SECURE_SERVER is set correctly, but that's about 
as far as I've gotten due to a second problem:  it appears that the 
login cookie isn't being written or found or something.  Each admin 
page I go to I have to log in over again.  I know cookies are working 
in my browser generally, and I can see that this site has written an 
MV_SESSION_ID cookie, but perhaps that is a different one.  It's 
probably related to the above problem somehow.

Any suggestions?  If https wasn't working at all I'd know what to do, 
more or less, but I've never had a problem like this before.  BTW we 
are not using virtual hosts;  each site has it's own IP address.
