[Bug-wget] Wget and missing cookies

I am using the firefox plugin 'httpfox' to trace the sending and receiving
of cookies between my browser and the web server. I can see cookies
initially being received by the browser, and then subsequently being sent
back to the server on further page requests.

However, simulating the same, simple request with wget (using -S and -d) I
do *not* see these cookies being received.

I have tested several sites that i know well - some do send the cookies to
wget, but others dont, even though tools such as 'httpfox' do always show
them, as expected.

Is there any reason whey either wget wouldnt see cookies being sent, or
maybe why the server would not send cookies to the wget user-agent?
