When attempting to view any page served by trac.cgi I am given the following message:

Trac detected an internal error:


With this backtrace:

This looks like you have some malformed cookie that the Cookie-module chokes on.

Can you try to remove all cookies (for that site) from the browser and see if that helps?

There are no cookies set for the subdomain trac is running under, or the parent domain.

Ok, I know what it is now. Python2.1 doesn't like stuff like this:

if 'key' in cookie:

This should work instead:

if cookie.has_key('key'):

I'll commit a fix for this later today. Thanks for your report!
