Thank you. There are still a lot of things still left to do, but I hope this 
takes it one step forward...

Funny thing is that Gmail was the test site I used to test the full cookiejar 
integration as well as the visual notification (security pad icon) when 
visiting SSL sites. As such gmail should now completely work with an exception 
of a very very very minor rendering bug (partial overlapping of email and 
associated check box) at least for me.

The issue there, and I am not aware if there was any KIO bugs prior to me 
working on it, was caused by the partial kcookiejar support. More specifically 
the KIO integration meant that cookies received and sent were obtained from 
the KCookiejar where as all the javascript cookies were saved and obtained 
from the internal QNetworkCookieJar used by QWebPage. As a result, a page was 
unable to retreive cookies set by the http ioslave and vise-versa...
