well, these are the changes for cookies - if you can describe the problem
better, I can try testing to see if/what I broke something.

* modify cookie path prefix-comparison to ignore a trailing slash, e.g.,
  /group/sftvnews/ versus /group/sftvnews (workaround for LV visiting -TD
* cookie path= should be a prefix of the request-URI path, so do not truncate
  request-URI path in LYSetCookie() [we got mistaken "invalid cookie path=..."
  prompt in some cases previously] -LP
* move logic for cookie_domain_flag_set() out of LYReadCFG.c into LYCookie.c
  rewriting it to make it table-driven, where it is now shared with LYrcFile.c
