Profile with Anonymous lifecycle question.

hi all,

I am working with a custom profile provider that stores my business
object as profile with anonymous identification turned on.

I have a question regarding how it is supposed to work with forms
authentication etc

We want to remember user settings every time they visit the site,
anonymous or not

so the scenario is

1. anonymous user on site, adds something to the cart

2. user creates an account on the site and the profile migrate event
fires, i move the profile and clear the anonymous cookie

3. user closes the browser.

4. user comes to the site again, and the site starts thinking its a new
anonymous user, since the anonymous cookie was cleared
My question is how can i make it work so that even when member user
comes back to the site, the site remembers its preferences, so in step 4
above, the settings are pulled back ? do i need to not clear the
anonymous cookie ?
