According to netscape the cookie date value is expected to be in the
GMT time zone only so that is not the problem. This is more likely the
cause (from Netscape again)

The expires header lets the client know when it is safe to purge the mapping
but the client is not required to do so.
A client may also delete a cookie before it's expiration date arrives
if the number of cookies exceeds its internal limits

What you will have to do is encode your time in the value passed with
the cookie and do your own checking...ignoring it if it is older than
10 seconds
