There is only one jar instance shared by all access objects, they all 
alter existing cookies in that jar. The boolean variable tracks that 
only the first HTTP access in the module chain frees the jar (the flag 
will be false for other access objects in the chain). Perhaps reference 
counting would be clearer?
