The cookies are tied to the URL, so the cookies are not the same for http and https connects. It certainly is not true that Remember Me requires an https connection to work. It works fine with http. Bottom line, each protocol requires its own cookie which is established by doing a Remember Me for each.

If you can't preserve a log in with Remember Me over HTTP, you've got something else going on.
