It only has to send the raw bytes when it's using the old, deprecated, V0
control protocol. The current V1 protocol expects a hexified cookie.
Note that arma recently fixed a bug in cookie authentication
(src/or/control.c revision 1.192, dated 2006-05-24). Without that bugfix
cookie authentication doesn't work at all.
