Bug description:  Cookie function being parsed by PHP

I wanted to point out something for the parsing of a setcookie function in PHP on 

If I set a cookie with no attributes like:

setcookie("cookietype", "chocolateChip");

It seems to work fine I can place it before the headers and call it after I select a 
link. Your function list on the quickref page states that setcookie is involved in the 
NS cookie standard format.

i.e. int setcookie("cookie_name", "cookie_value", expire_time, "location", "url", 

When I set a cookie as:

setcookie("cookieType", "oatmealRaisen", time()+45000, "/",

It will not show up or even set. I cleared all of my cookies and accessed the page. My 
script sets the cookie before the header information and then I click a link to a test 
page that calls the cookie and tries to echo the value. No value, check my cookies 
folder and no cookie. Do I need to modify the cookie function in PHP source to work on 
freeBSD or is it missong some special module that parses cookies responsibly.
