So the problem happens the moment someone goes from HTTP to HTTPS for this
website (checkout pages, login pages etc) ... They start out on
http://www.domain.com/ ... happily going, session ID is the same, then
they go do something that requires SSL get directed to
https://www.domain.com/ ... this causes getting a new session ID, which
then stays the same while continuing to surf ... right?
Does the site work with cookies? Or you pass along the session ID in the
URLs everywhere? I assume cookies and perhaps there something goes wrong
when going from http to https ...
