I am facing the following issue:

when i login to my application, i am setting the value of a cookie. Cookie name = TESTCOOKIE.
When i logout, say the click of a link, i am programmatically removing the cookie as follows:

If i dont close the browser window and tried to login again, i see the following:
  • TESTCOOKIE=5130015848645758769

  • The second value is the expected value. I understand that the first value is because of me deleting the cookie.
    I see this happening in IE6 only. Can anybody let me know, if i can remove the first TESTCOOKIE from the list.

    Because of two cookies with the same name, i am unable to login to the application again.
