Someone sent me an example and I could track down the problem: Google
Analytics sends cookies that contain '=' characters in the cookie
value. Websh assumed that '=' only separates cookie names from values
and tehrefore parsed the cookies not correctly in some cases.

Anyway: usually nobody want to know what the problem was, as long as
it's fixed now, therefore: it is fixed now :-)
Get the latest version from the repository to check it out if needed.
