I suppose that depends on how the alias works.  I have setups where the
domain is changed for an alias and it issues the cookie on the aliased
domain just fine (I just double checked).

CookieDomain defaults to the websites current hostname (that it was
accessed with).  I don't recommend setting it at all unless you have a
specific reason to.

See <http://www.interchange.rtfm.info/icdocs/config/CookieDomain.html>

This does sound like it could be a cookie problem, though.  I can't say
for sure without the URL of the site so I can look at it.
