The only suggestion I would have would be to use the networking components
of php and do the HTTP POST request manually.  It's a bit of a long way
round and not something I've tried myself but it's probably the way I would
try to do it myself.

As for the the sessionid, if it is appended to the URL then it's not too
hard to deal with as you simply pass it as a variables either by GET or
POST, if however it resides in a cookie then it get more interesting.
