Cookie problem

I have been using cURL successfully for a few months and it has bees very helpful.

I notice that this list is powered by 'MailMan' which my University has just migrated to.

I want to be able to manage lists automatically by uploading files of users.

Access to the Admin interface is managed by a Cambridge written Web Authentication routine called RAVEN

When I try to access a protected page I am directed to the authentication prompt. Clicking this sets a cookie for the listserver which I can save to file. Submitting the user ID and password sets another cookie for Raven. However when I am automatically directed back to the page I originally requested the listserver site modifies the cookie that it initially set. I can capture the first cookie but cannot seem to get the second.

I can 'harvest' a valid authentication key by manual means and the rest of the cURL commands I have written work just fine.

How can I update the listserver cookie?
