The browser determines which cookies to include with a request by 
comparing the domain of the server it is about to contact with 
the domain of the cookies.   I didn't see any domain in the 
cookies you are setting; there should be one.

The template http cookie header:

Set-Cookie: name=value; expires=date; path=pathname; domain=domainname
