CURLINFO_COOKIELIST and curl_easy_getinfo()

I'm trying to get a list of cookies from a handle using this code in
Windows (using Dev-Cpp and libcurl 7.16.2)

struct curl_slist *cookies = NULL;
CURLcode ret = curl_easy_getinfo(handle, CURLINFO_COOKIELIST, &cookies);
However, curl_easy_getinfo() always returns a code of 43, which has an
error of "a libcurl function was given a bad argument". The handle is
valid... a few lines previous, it was used in curl_easy_perform(),
which executed with no errors.
If I replace CURLINFO_COOKIELIST with another option such as
CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS, and replace the pointer to a curl_slist with a
pointer to a long, no error occurs.
