I haven't been able to set enough time to look at this yet, but at
this point I think it's a bug.

I say that because the cookie is only returned to the client if a
cookie is not provided by the client in the request.  I'm not sure if
that's by design or not.  I think not because the State::Cookie code
is still getting called, just *after* the headers have already been

I sent a failing test case to nothingmuch a few days ago just in case
it might be an obvious fix for someone familiar with the code -- but
that's about as far as I could get with the time I had.  I'll attach
that test case.
