In Safari on the Mac, all users are losing session when proceeding to checkout page.
I have cart data in session.
I redirect to secure page: https:// on same domain.
receiving page loses session and errors out.
IE and Firefox work with no problems.

Is there some sort of problem with keeping session information intact when redirecting to secure server?  Why would this problem not show up in IE or Firefox.
BTW Opera 8.0 was exhibiting this behavior as well, but 8.2 update fixed the issue.

It seems like this is a PHP issue, but I'm lost because I can only see it on certain browsers.
