This issue here is that the cookie contains a domain without a lead dot.

According to rfc2109 [1], an explicitly specified domain should always start
without a dot.

However, both .NET, Internet Explorer and FireFox seem to allow a domain
without a leading dot.

In CookieContainer.CheckDomain, we filter out cookies that have a domain
without a leading dot.

Another difference is that we consider the cookie a match if the domain is the
same as the host, while .NET ignores the cookie in that case.

I've attached a small repro that shows the difference in behavior.
