Thanks for that.

Unfortunately, I am not able to upgrade Apache (yet), but I managed to
write a work around. For anyone's interest: after having sent the
request, the back-end server checks whether it has sent a redirect
with Set-cookie headers. If that is the case, these cookies are stored
in a session variable. On any request, the back-end server checks for
the existence of such a session variable; if it exists it sends the
remembered cookies to the user and empties the variable.
