I spent yesterday laid up with a cold. Between naps I found myself
coming back to (url-cookie-expired-p) and Andreas' response to my GMT
conversion. I kept thinking that there must be kernel of wisdom for
this grasshopper to find.

I would like to suggest the following replacement for
(url-cookie-expired-p); please see attached patch.

(defun url-cookie-expired-p (cookie)
        (let* ((exp (url-cookie-expires cookie))
                                 (exp-time (and exp (float-time (date-to-time 
                (if (not exp) nil
                        (> (float-time) exp-time))))

If the cookie has an expiration date, (float-time (date-to-time exp))
takes care of converting this to a float time, adjusted to the
client's time zone. Then all we need to do is compare this exp-time
against (float-time).

As an added bonus, we can now remove the url-cookie dependency on timezone.
