I finally had the time to get in and look at the headers.  It seems  
the issue was in the expiration calculation.  The cookie that was  
coming through was set to expire 10 mins before it got there!  I  
changed the cookie_expires in my config file to read "+1d" but still  
no good.  Even though it said +1d, I was getting cookies that either  
would expire within 10 mins or had already expired.

Now, I have had problems with my system clock losing time.  At one  
point it was more than 30 mins behind.  I have since attempted to set  
up an ntp daemon, although I'm not convinced of my success.  Right  
now my clock is a little less than 3 mins behind the real time.

However, 3 mins does not explain why the day won't increment.  Is  
there anything else I can check that may be causing this?  In the  
meantime I've put in an explicit expiration of Jan 1, 2006.  In case  
it matters, my system clock is set to the local time (US Eastern  
Daylight Time, or GMT -05:00).
