Why -g ? This will only fetch the first file without even 
parsing it

Humm strange. The cookies.txt is in the yahoo folder, isn't 
it? Can you activate the header trace log, by adding -%H in 
the commandline (% to be escaped if necessary) ? This will 
generate a hts-log.txt file, containing all 
requests/responses (don't post it here, as it can contain 
your password or authentication scheme) - ensure that the 
first request contains a "cookie" field

This is probably due to -g (this could also be due to -r)

Well with some help this should work

For your #2 message:

>struggled and got the following command line

httrack might try to test the page type before fetching it 
(bad) ; use:
to avoid that

Yes - the cookie system should definitely work, especially 
if it works with wget (this is a proof that this method 
should actually work)
