Do note that this script doesn't enable libcurl's "cookie engine", it only
sets a single string to pass in the cookie header. I bet that's not what the

libcurl has a set amount of maximum number of redirects to follow, possibly
you reached that.

Also, you should consider using CURLOPT_VERBOSE to compare the request headers
as well with the request headers you've recorded with livehttpheaders...
