Bug description:  cookie problem

I am rather sure this isn't a php bug.  So lets not get unfriendly about it.  But i 
have asked over and over in other places with out an answer.  at least point me in the 
right direction.  please

I have set up a user login so that it will assign a cookie for one hour -
setcookie("cookie_id", $id, time()+3600);

The manner in which i suse the expiration is copied form the manual but i have 
actually tried several alteratives.  The problem is the expiration works perfectly 
locally (i am running apache 1.3 for windows)  but once i upload it (linux red hat 5.2 
(why so old i dont know)/ apache 1.3.19.)  The expiration will not work on my 
browser(s) unless i increase the expiration to +5000 or above.  My client tests it 
using the same version of IE i have and it will not set the cookie still at +5000 for 

Now i understand from browser to browser there can be differences but why can i set a 
cookie for +200 locally but not for less than +5000 uploaded when i am most certainly 
checking it with the same browser (IE 5.5)
