Unfortunately this is another case of Bug 3512.

Basically what happens is that a number of cookies are set for the ".ebay.de"
domain, but Safari (using the Foundation framework) fails to send these cookies
for domains with more than three parts (like "baby.listings.ebay.de").  When
this happens, the ebay.de site assumes you are not logged in, and sends new
cookies back that effectively log you out by erasing your session cookies. 
(Not sure if that made any sense, but it's what happens on a technical level.)

This is a known regression in Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4) that works in Panther
(10.3) and is fixed again in Leopard (10.5).

If you would like to see this fixed for Tiger, I suggest you file a bug with
Apple's internal bug tracking tool (Radar) using <http://bugreport.apple.com/>.
