Its not a useragent problem, and yes, the cookies are saved across. I'm pretty sure its a bug in mechanize, but I am not able to find or solve it.

you tried using Firefox's User-Agent? Their servers may be doing 
something different because they think you're using a different browser.

Also, make sure your second request contains the cookies issued in the first
