Description

The slash in the tvheadend cookie keys breaks a few other services running on the same domain.
This is the error message:

400 Bad Request
Illegal key 'ys-api/dvr/entry/grid_upcoming'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/app/tautulli/lib/cherrypy/_cprequest.py", line 732, in process_headers
self.cookie.load(value)
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/http/cookies.py", line 529, in load
self.__parse_string(rawdata)
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/http/cookies.py", line 593, in __parse_string
self.__set(key, rval, cval)
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/http/cookies.py", line 485, in __set
M.set(key, real_value, coded_value)
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/http/cookies.py", line 352, in set
raise CookieError('Illegal key %r' % (key,))
http.cookies.CookieError: Illegal key 'ys-api/dvr/entry/grid_upcoming'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/app/tautulli/lib/cherrypy/_cprequest.py", line 630, in respond
self._do_respond(path_info)
File "/app/tautulli/lib/cherrypy/_cprequest.py", line 658, in _do_respond
self.process_headers()
File "/app/tautulli/lib/cherrypy/_cprequest.py", line 734, in process_headers
raise cherrypy.HTTPError(400, str(exc))
cherrypy._cperror.HTTPError: (400, "Illegal key 'ys-api/dvr/entry/grid_upcoming'")

In my situation tvheadend breaks Tautulli, but searching the internet for a solution I've seen a many other examples where the slashes in tvheadend cookie keys break the service.

The slash is a valid ASCII character and is not one of the exceptions mentioned in RFC2616, so it is legal to use it. If other software is buggy then you should submit an issue report to the maintainers of it.

I'm getting an error from this cookie too. But a different error:

"Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

I confess I don't understand why the browser is sending a cookie set by TVH to localhost:9981 is being sent in a request to another completely different service on localhost:80 Is there a dummy's guide to how these things work that explains why? And ideally whether there is any way to stop it.
