15 or 18 character Ids when using frontdoor.jsp

We've been using the frontdoor mechanism successfully to link into Salesforce with a valid contactId and session Id. Today, the url failed if the contactId used the 18 character format and only suceeded if the 15 character format was used. How do know which format to use? Which should we use on an on going basis?

The application itself supports 15-character Ids, not 18-charater ones.

Generally speaking, we don't support the query strings to our URLs as an stable programming interface. If you provide us with a use case, maybe we can help you find a more programmatic way of accomplishing what you're doing.
