When proxing an XMLHttpRequest call via the XHR proxy, the `jar` option
in the `request` package was turned on by default. This would remember

separate, and the domain for cookies is the proxy's address, which is
As a result, there ended up being a large accruing of
random cookies that had buggy effects, such as hitting
cookie header size limits on various web servers.
This fixed GitHub Issue:
It seems cookie support, in general, is not feasible with the proxy
enabled, because the remote domain is always the proxy's address, and
not the actual remote domain being requested. This is something to
figure out separately.
