Right, I hadn't quite understood your problem when I posted my reply.  The code
posted does work and allow navigation, etc. but you do have the problem with it
sharing the same session cookies (I'm also on Win2k).  And to answer Martin, you
can definitely create as many iexplore.exe instances as you like in Windows.

How to get Python to launch several instances with COM... not sure, although I'm
99% certain it is doable.  I'll hunt around and see if I can find a solution
which I'll post back.
