I did this

curl -v --cookie-jar cookies.txt

I expected the following

cookies.txt to be created and contain FALSE / TRUE 0 domain value

Instead I got

* skipped cookie with bad tailmatch domain: value
and no cookies.txt file. It seems curl is wrongly applying attribute semantics to the cookie's name. Note that sets no restrictions on cookie-name

curl/libcurl version
