I get this problem consistently if I use a proxy server that itself has a
parent. That is, I use the proxy server of an ISP which in turn uses the
proxy of their provider. The problem seems to be that there are multiple
proxies selected by some sort of L4 switch so I get often get a different
proxy with every request. Not sure why this stuffs up the cookies.
