    In some scenarios, a cache key is supplied by WebSphere
    Process Server.  This cache key was not being handled properly
    by WebSphere Application Server, leaving propagation token on
    the thread.  This token may be retrieved days or weeks
    after it is cached causing LtpaToken expiration error.
    This apar applies to the same environment where PM15658 is
    applicable.
