Problem with ClientCookie

I am trying to use ClientCookie to access a HTTPS website under Win98.  I
have installed the W32 SSL wrappers.

The code I have is similar to as follows (have removed authorisation
detail):

import urllib
import ClientCookie

if __name__ == '__main__':
    urllib.URLopener.version = 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows
NT 5.0)'
    print 'Logging on...'
    request =
urllib2.Request('https://www.quicktrade.com.au/cgi-bin/login?USERNAME=myUser
Name&PASSWORD=myPassword')
    result = ClientCookie.urlopen(request)

I have set HTTP_DEBUG = 1 in _ClientCookie.py

I get the following response...


Logging on...
Page requested...
send: 'GET /cgi-bin/login?USERNAME=myUserName&PASSWORD=myPassword
HTTP/1.0\r\n'
send: 'Host: www.quicktrade.com.au\r\n'
send: 'User-agent: Python-urllib/2.0a1\r\n'
send: '\r\n'
reply: 'HTTP/1.1 200 OK\r\n'

    k, v = re.split(r"\s*=\s*", param, 1)
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

I can't find anything to help me debug this.  Is the error because the web
server is returning more than one cookie?  or is it just returning a bad
format?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
