Digging further into that issue I found the webkit
engine adds the prefix "#HttpOnly_" to the relevant
cookie in the cookies.txt and wget therefore gladly ignores
the line. Someone should probably think up a patch for that.
It's enough to strip that prefix. Normally this seems to be
a security issue w.r.t. XSS-attacks, but I'm not sure
that's relevant in this specific case.

I fixed that issue in the attached code. Not beautiful, but working.
If someone has an idea on how to improve that, do so. :)
