check the mailinglist archive. There was a thread on cookies for Gtk+  
some month back. The situation looks like this:  
ResourceHandleManagerCurl.cpp can get a cookies file set, this will  
be set to CURL.
So what you want to do is:
	-Write the code in a way you can send us a patch (hint, hint, hint)
	-Look into CURL how it handles cookies
	-Check if we set cookies on a request in ResourceHandleManagerCurl,  
and check how it needs to be done with CURL
	-You can look at the sandlabs WebKit fork, they have created another  
cookie manager and you could backport the patches.

I'm looking forward to see your patch.

	kind regards
