RFC 2109, section 4.3.1:
   Path   Defaults to the path of the request URL that generated the
          Set-Cookie response, up to, but not including, the
          right-most /.

I believe the RFC2109 spec handles such cookies correctly. 

The so called popular browsers tend to have fairly dodgy ways of handling
cookies. We can consider changing the browser compatibility spec, though, if
other browsers such as IE exhibit the same problem.
