Actually, better:
I'm not a cookie expert, but I think that some cookies are saved on disk and
other  cookies (session  cookies?)  are kept  in memory  and  lost when  the
browser is closed.

Junkbuster does let session cookies through apparently.
Would it be possible for mailman to issue a session cookie if the regular
cookie didn't go through?
