As per my earlier commments about seeing the privacy report this will 
answer all your questions regarding cookies.. also you can allways 
telnet to the host eg..

telnet {host} 80
get /{page.html} http/1.0
host: {}
{ctrl d}

You should then see the header information as well that should include 
your cookie informaiton if not you have even a bigger problem.
