Unfortunately I don't have control over the script being debugged. I
suspect that
xdebug cannot help here either as it probably appends the cookie to the
executing php script header response (based on the info you provided).

Ok, then for the general case the best solution is to have a manual switch
that sets the
xdebug cookie. I know there is a firefox one already, but it has a couple
of bugs in it
so doesn't work with PDT correctly :-(
