The one line curl commands people recommended don't end up on the
members.php page (I can tell because of the <TITLE> tag). The only way
I've got as far as members.php is to use my horrible-looking double
curl command. But when I do get this far the info I'm after is not
populated, almost as if the username and password have failed
validation.

Here's what I get in LiveHTTPHeaders in Firefox:

Does that shed any light on this? One thing I notice is that there are
2 fields called x and y which I haven't seen before. They seem to take
random values.

How do I tell if I've got an SSL-enabled curl or not? According to the
man page on my machine is does support SSL.
