Right, but you could do a separate temporary install somewhere just to see if
it alters the behavior you're seeing. It is always kinda silly to chase for
bugs that already has been fixed in a more recent version.

In this command line, it doesn't use the session id cookie. curl ignores
cookies by default. You have to explicitly switch it on.

Uh, I guess in the java interface that function isn't called until the object
is killed by the garbage collector or something.

And in the second request, are you saying that the cookie is not passed to
the server correctly anyway?

If so, can you show us how the headers look like that you receive in the
first response?
