[Catalyst] Safari, Sessions and Cookies

In the latest version of Safari, if you transition from normal web
content to audio/video content the browser passes the request on to
Quicktime. This hand off causes a change in the user agent that is
reported to Catalyst, which in turn cause the Session to be reset.
Changing the initialization of session object to ignore the user agent
does not prevent the session data from being reset:

'Plugin::Session' => { expires => 1800, verify_address => 1,
verify_user_agent => 0 }

Anyone got any ideas as to how to resolve this?
Thanks  - J
