Do you mean you are using EAP 4.3? Or JBoss 4.2.3? If it's EAP 4.3 and you have a support contract, I recommend you open a support ticket on the Customer Service Portal, where there's an SLA.

In your other environment where you aren't seeing the asterisks, the webapp must not have the

<distributable/> element in web.xml.

I suspect the problem you are seeing is an issue in the JvmRouteValve, which is responsible for changing the session cookie when it detects a failover has occurred. There have been a number of changes in this valve, so before I start chasing this please confirm exactly what version you are using.  This gets logged in the server.log at the end of startup, e.g.

Also, please confirm, when you wrote 

anonymous wrote : of the kind ".jvmRoute.jvmRoute"

you meant, for example


Ideally please paste an example of a healthy JSESSIONID (i.e. before problem happens) and a broken one.
