libwww doesn't know anything about cookies and I can successfully point the
mget sample app

	http://www.w3.org/Library/Examples/mget.c

linked from

	http://www.w3.org/Library/Examples/#GET

at http://www.netscape.com which exactly returns a HTTP/1.0 response with a
set-cookie header field.

Could you try and run this sample app?
