Domain aliasing... no cookie?

I've just noticed, whilst playing with the Domain Aliasing feature (, that because the session cookie is tied to you can never be logged in to LiveJournal whilst accessing through your aliased domain.

I have aliased to my journal, and it works fine, but if you go to an entry such as this one... you will see that you are not logged in.

Is there a way around this kind of restriction? I know this is like asking how to bypass security, but without it domain aliasing is effectively useless.

Any thoughts? I've tried looking into this on my own LJ installation, but no joy.

UPDATE: I've just noticed that all the sidebar links are rooted at the aliased domain. These obviously don't work either.
