Great, I have made further modifications in accessmanagerreply_p.cpp...

1.) Since cookies are going to be handled by KIO, make sure they are not set 
in QNetworkReply to avoid duplicate calls KCookieJar. kio_http already does 
this for us. I had to resort to this hack because QNetworkCookieJar does not 
provide separate functions for setting cookies from javascript and hence there 
is no way to distinguish the source of the cookies (javascript/http).

2.) Use QPointer for the kio job to guard against it being deleted. This 
caused a crash in few sites because the ::abort() function seemed to be called 
after the job was already deleted.
