           Summary: Setting domain on <forms> tag doesn't change auth
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 2.4.x AddOn CD
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: SLES 11

I am using FormsAuthentication and when I set the domain attribute in the
configuration it does not change the domain on the authentication cookie.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup the forms authentication in the web.config:

<authentication mode="Forms">
  <forms loginUrl="member_login.aspx"
    domain="contoso.com" />

2.  Create a login page which uses the
FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage method.

3. Login.
Actual Results:  
After logging in the .MONOAUTH cookie returned has no domain so it defaults to
the hostname of the server.  Using the example above the cookie would return
with "www.contoso.com".

Expected Results:  
The .MONOAUTH cookie should be returned for the domain defined in the
authentication/forms section.  In the example case it would be "contoso.com".

Here is what I believe the fix is for

> #if NET_2_0
> 			if (cookie_domain != null && cookie_domain.Length > 0)
> 				cookie.Domain = cookie_domain;
> #endif
> #if NET_2_0
> 			if (cookie_domain != null && cookie_domain.Length > 0)
> 				expiration_cookie.Domain = cookie_domain;
> #endif

I generated these diffs on the 2.6.3 version of the FormsAuthentication class
but I would like this to be applied to the 2.4 add-on for SLES as well.
