Currently on every request, if not already present, a FE-session-cookie is set for the user. Imho this could/should be avoided until needed - for example until data is written into the session.

(PS: If there are arguments against this as a general solution, maybe it could at least be configurable.)

Steffen Müller agreed but suggested to first write some testcases and refactor the code in question.

There are already some ways to work around it (see EXT:moc_varnish) but there should be a way to configure this in the core.

It is possible since 6.2 (?) to have no FE cookies set.

Yes resolved in 6.2 (or so). This issue dates back to stone-age (well, event 4.5) :-) Thanks for finding/closing.
