Session Management problem

Session variables getting initialised back to their default values.
Not sure if this is a problem with my operating system (MAC), Internet Explorer 5.2, or session management in general:
I open a browser window and login in to my application which initialises many session variables. I open a new window from the first window and login in to another application. Both applications are served by the same webapp in Tomcat. When I switch back to the first window and resume work I find that the session data is corrupt. This only happens on a MAC.
Any help is appreciated.

Session data is not getting corrupt but getting cleared, i.e. the user in session is set to the public user for the site. Its as if I didn't login at all. (The first thing which happens prior to login is that the session is populated with public user details.)
Also, I don't think it's possible to open a new browser instance on a MAC, so the suggestion in the other topic won't work in this case.

How is the session data corrupt? Garbage or just incorrect values?
