           Summary: CookieContainer doesn't produce a valid cookie header
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: SVN
          Platform: i686
        OS/Version: Ubuntu
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: System
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com

When using a HttpWebRequest with a cookie container, like in the following code
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.create(new
request.CookieContainer = someCookieContainer;

the resulting request sent to the http server will contain a Cookie header with
each cookie separated by a semicolon, like the following example :
Cookie: cookie1=value1;cookie2=value2;cookie3=value3

Whereas the expected result is to see the cookies separated by a semicolon AND
a space, like the following example :
Cookie: cookie1=value1; cookie2=value2; cookie3=value3

Some web servers will simply ignore the cookies, other will handle the problem.
I discovered this bug because the cookies were simply ignored by IIS/5.0 (I got
a page "Please activate the cookies").
