This (the fix I made, plus a followup fix) was what I recall:

2001-06-10 (2.8.4pre.2)
* corrected order of parameters of is_prefix() function in the
  scan_cookie_sublist() function, broken in dev.21 changes (report by Ken Scott
  <address@hidden>) -TD
2001-06-02 (2.8.4dev.21)
* modify cookie path prefix-comparison to ignore a trailing slash, e.g.,
  /group/sftvnews/ versus /group/sftvnews (workaround for LV visiting -TD
