The vendor did adjust the SameSite cookies in their app, and if accessed
directly, it seems to work.
The issue occurs when the app is launched from "peoplesoft direct connect",
during which the checkout procedure only works during that magic 2 minute
interval.  Afterwards, it breaks.

Our PS people opened a support case with Oracle, and Oracle of course says
that it's the Shibboleth SP that is breaking the functionality.
