Someone was having problems with a site using my software, and the site seems 
to be sending it's cookies with a domain part involving the protocol as well. 
Like in:

    Set-Cookie: PHPSESSID=6bda0; path=/fake/; domain=http://www.example.com

Just out of curiosity, does anyone around here know if user-agents out there 
actually support this? libcurl surely doesn't...
