Note that most browsers use the same cookie-set if you do a 
"File->New->New Window" command, but use a new cookie-set if you simply 
start them in another process (for Windows that means clicking on the 
icon again to launch a new browser instance).

Try it with whatever browser you're using to test (varies by browser, but 
all that I've used have a similar way to accomplish this), but solving 
the problem this way would be much, much, much easier than asking your 
app to do something it's not "supposed" to do.
