I've just checked in test 1024 which tests cookies across redirects, and
both the CVS version of curl and 7.17.1 work fine. Test 1024 only tests
cookies in different paths on a single server, but when I hacked the
test to simulate multiple servers it still worked as expected.

How is this test case different from your situation? Can you show us logs
of such a session?
