This is always caused by either clock or timezone problems. The expiry 
time of the cookie is set by one end, and the system thinks the cookie 
has expired before it was even created.

Do a "date" command and check the clock is correct and the timezone if 
I've never seen this caused by anything except time/date/timezone problems.
