Enabling dbgSession has illuminated the problem.  The date  
calculation seems to be made at the time the server starts up, not at  
the time the cookie is sent.  I used grep to look at all the cookies  
that have been sent in the last week, and they all have the exact  
same cookie expiration date (which of course, was 12 hours after I  
restarted the server last week).
