(You should be showing us the complete, uncut console output.)

You're saying this works for you, right? And not with "-cookies"? It
that an issue for you?

>From playing around, I can confirm that the implementation of
"-cookies" does seem to have some deficits. You would have seen this,
had you compared the quoted output from "-headers" with that from
"-cookies": As soon as "-cookies" has more than one cookie (separated
by "; ", it one uses the first. If you don't add a cookie "path=/;", it
won't validate the command line and refuse to send any cookie at all

I can't fix this, because I don't understand the intention of the code.
;-) Perhaps someone else will take a look.

I don't need "$'\r\n'" with "-headers" by the way, it works without.
