Re: Bug or strange behavior with CURLOPT_COOKIE: cookie value disappears

No, this is a quite consistent problem with my SuSE 10.2 installation (my
PC). Changing the names of the cookies does not alter anything.

I think that I also mentioned that the example script works smoothly and
as expected on the PHP installation on my webhotel.

Cookies in general also work well on the problem SuSE machine. So it's not
an Apache problem.

thanks, Mikkel
