The function 'cookie' puts the keys and values into the transient symbol
"*Cookies" (internal to "lib/http.l"), to be inserted into the next HTTP
header. The global variable *Cookies, on the other hand, is filled
during the GET or POST request.

Do you still need to use cookies internally, once you passed the long
password id to the other server?

This should not matter. The redirection simply sends a page to the
browser that tells him another address.
