Viewing session cookies in IE?

When you view the cookies in IE (tools->internet options->settings->view files) it does not show session cookies, only persistent cookies. Is there any way to view session cookies in IE?

We are running into a problem here where IE refuses to accept a session cookie. I found out that IE will only accept 20 session cookies and then it will refuse them. I was able to recreate the problem simply by opening an IE window and then visiting 20 sites that start sessions. We have a lot of web based apps here at this company, and I suspect that they have set the session timeouts to unreasonably high numbers which probably makes it easy to accumulate 20 session cookies.

Being able to view the session cookies would help me to determine which apps have their session timeouts set to an unreasonably long value.

Thanks!
Todd

Well I found that using javascript's "document.kookie", I can get to the session (transient) cookies for the current page, but not all the transient cookies the browser is using.

I really need to know all the transient cookies the browser has. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!
Todd
