HttpClient WARNING: Cookie rejected: Illegal domain attribute

I'm using HttpClient latest version (4.x). And right now I'm trying to do A GET Request.
I just posting a Get request.

This is my Code;

public class Poster {

static boolean routing1 = true, routing2 = true;
static int counter1 = 0, counter2 = 0;
DefaultHttpClient oHtp = null;
HttpGet oHGet = null;
HttpResponse oHRes = null;

private void test(String fullAddress) throws Exception {
oHtp = new DefaultHttpClient();
oHGet = new HttpGet(fullAddress);

HttpResponse response = oHtp.execute(oHGet);

HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity();
if (entity != null) {
entity = new BufferedHttpEntity(entity);
// System.out.println(EntityUtils.toString(entity));
System.out.print("\t entity is retrieved... ");


I just execute it nicely.
First is

new Poster().test("");

and second is

new Poster().test("");

ya, And Only the Second one.... I got this The error message;

I realized that the Cookie is involved here. But I dont understand what the Warning means. And I also dont' know how to solve it (Cookie not being rejected). HOpe there is a bit of light to clear my mind from you guys.... :D

You can't "fix" it. The site is trying to set a cookie it's not allowed to set and the apache client library you're using is telling you about it.

It's trying to set a cookie for when the domain is
