of all of them that I've used, the Foundry had the least problems and had a
nicely structured config.  

Foundry seems to be fine for www traffic, but has serious issues with 
handling long FTP sessions.  FTP works while you're in your stickiness 
period (up to 2 hours on the non-XL serveriron), but after that it will 
forget which FTP server has the control session and send your next data 
session to another server which won't recognise it.  Last time I spoke to 
Foundry, this was still considered a "feature".

Do other vendors handle this properly?

I recall that Resonate Central Dispatch handled this well the last
time I looked, but the last time I looked was about 3 years ago now,
so take that for what it's worth.  (www.resonate.com)
