Cookies not getting set

I am running apache 2.2.4 on Red Hat. I need to set 2 cookies, then redirect the request. The redirect is working, but the cookies are not being set. In order to debug this, I wrote a simple Perl CGI that sets 2 cookies, then redirects to another Perl CGI on the same server which reads all cookies.
Here is the CGI that sets the cookies and performs the redirect (note: domain name changed to protect the innocent)

The redirect occurs and this CGI reads all cookies, but the 2 cookies set above are never found:

Is there an apache config / directive that I need to set?
Any help is appreciated.
