[plt-scheme] net/cookie and IE

Hi -

I just found a problem with the interaction between net/cookie and IE (I
tested on IE7).

Basically - when generating a cookie with `(cookie:add-path cookie "/")`, it
generates the following cookie:

key=value; Path="/"; Version=1

The Path spec works in Firefox, but not in IE.  IE expects Path=/ (without
the double quotes) instead, and it drops the cookie (and breaks cookie-based
session) in response.

>From RFC 2109, this appears to be an IE bug, but changing IE's behavior
might be beyond us ... :)

p.s. this might be related the thread
