Why set_user is not called when using Secure Maps?

I am using the latest Oracle Maps (11g ps6 v11. and I am trying to support authentication to display different content to the users.

I want to do this using cookie authentication. I've set the configuration as the documentation indicates, and I see my cookie being read in the logs:


Jul 01, 2013 1:15:50 AM oracle.lbs.mapserver.oms getAuthenticatedUserIds

FINEST: User name stored in cookie [MON_USER] : francis


The problem I have is that the set_user procedure of my package is not called, even though the clear_user is called at the end of the request. I have an insert statement in my procedure, I am not relying strictly on the logs.


Jul 01, 2013 1:15:50 AM oracle.sdovis.ds.DSUtil closeDBConnection

FINEST: package web_user_info.clear_user called.



Anybody know if this is a bug or if there is a way around? Or have been able to make it work? I have the impression I've tried everything, even changing the name of my package & cookie to be the same as in the documentation.
