David, please refrain from top-posting.

As for cURL login/session handling... I have an automated script that
connects to a phpBB bulletin board, and here are the settings that
have worked for me:

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "{$homedir}cookiefile");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "{$homedir}cookiefile");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIE, session_name() . '=' . session_id());

are most important for resolving your issue.
