There's a user contributed note about using (reading / altering) the
curl in-memory cookie jar in the php documentation for curl_setopt():

If that doesn't work for you, you can bypass the entire curl cookie
handling by reading the incoming Cookies from the response headers,
and setting them again as request headers for the next request.
