IE8 not handling cookies appropriately

I have two domains (primary and secondary) mapped to in the hosts file. I have web application deployed on weblogic.

Now I open up IE8 and go to primary domain i.e. ? and login successfuly. The session cookie I see in the response is


Now I open another tab in the same browser window of IE8 and try to navigate to subdomain. Now the subdomain also has the cookie from primary domain. Though I try to clear it by setMaxAge(0), setPath("/"), setdomain, however this cookie does not clean out which I guess causes the weblogic to return me to the Login page on the second page for subdomain. I see two cookies in subdomain response


This does not happen if instead of a tab I open up a new browser window.

This issue does not occur on firefox, chrome. Please provide a solution to this issue
