After upgrading to Python 2.6.5, Django test client is storing malformed cookies, thus not allowing to test anything session-related

The error is relatively hard to track, as no exception is raised by DB session backend.
File-based session backend raises

SuspiciousOperation: Invalid characters (directory components) in session key

It looks like the error is caused by the change to Cookie module introduced here:

Not sure if this change affects other libraries.
