Oh yeah, about the lifetime of the cookie - with no valid expiry time it is 
created as a session cookie - which is supposed to only live as long as the

[opening a new independent browser window does not share the session, but 
window.open() calls do, as do other 'browser created from browser with 
session' methods, if that makes any sense, <grin>]
