Cookie maxAge problem

I have a simple Seam applikacion created in Eclipse.I'm trying to track down user's session using cookies.You can see in pages.xml what methods from manage bean are invoked on each page.After I enter username on the login page,appropriate cookie is created and the login_success page is displayed.There is also a check box which determines max age of the username cookie(if checked cookie's max age is set to a large value).I've noticed,during debugging,if the check box is checked,at first,username cookie is set properly but on the login_success page when GetLogged() method is invoked,cookie max age is -1(will be deleted at the end of the session) instead of a much larger value.
Another curious thing occurs,when the check box is not checked,the cookie is still in the browser even its max age before the browser's closing was -1 and it shouldn't be there after reopenning of the browser.



GetCurrentUlr() updates cookie containg last visited page.

Any suggestions?Thanks
I agree. Here's the link:
