It's not part of the URL, but it gets treated as if it is

I'm geting tons of crawls of my site, that differ only by the session ID: - - [28/Nov/2006:16:05:36 -0800] "GET
/awards.do;jsessionid=68B86DFF8E4A8597B210531C3431965D HTTP/1.1" 200
17195 "-" "Exabot/3.0" - - [28/Nov/2006:16:17:30 -0800] "GET
/awards.do;jsessionid=0621414681C92E1A00A9428A7800AC30 HTTP/1.1" 200
17195 "-" "Exabot/3.0" - - [28/Nov/2006:17:00:36 -0800] "GET
/awards.do;jsessionid=0079FCD91ED8E5B86902228D285CCEEF HTTP/1.1" 200
17195 "-" "Exabot/3.0" - - [28/Nov/2006:20:41:50 -0800] "GET
/awards.do;jsessionid=DE9B61384D3D75DE9EB38A21F066E433 HTTP/1.1" 200
17195 "-" "Exabot/3.0"

I'm seeking (and have been for a while) a solution to this problem. It seems that programmers think that? and & the only parameter separators in a URL, ignoring ";". I'm having this trouble with Google, Alexa, Exalead, and URL verification tools such as Xenu Linsleuth. I can't solve it, because it's done deep in Java.

My environment is Java/Struts/Apache 2/Tomcat 5.5.
