Downloads fail on sites that require a login

Because Android's download manager is running as a different app than Privacy Browser, downloads fail from sites that require a login, like webmail or ownCloud. Is there some way to pass the session information to download manager?
I fixed this issue by passing session information as request header if cookies are enabled. This will work for cookie-based authentication which is common. The required session info can be retrieved from Android's CookieManager. I already tested it with one page I usually use that did not work before the change and it is working there.
Before committing my changes I need to clarify with my employer concerning the Code Submission Agreement. I hope to be able to send it to you next week.
