Hum. Didn't know. Well, I could add an option for that one, so it is  
disabled by default. But to me we have a simplified problem, as we  
just want to support Cookies across redirection. I don't plan to do  
something to support more complex situation.

We don't promise a full blown implementation of Cookies support, just  
enough to work with some web server. I'll fix this domain check,  
though, currently it shouldn't be too troublesome.

Thanks for the review,
