Cookie.setMaxAge() doesn't work?

OK, cookies should be ultra simple to write and retrieve. For some reason, I'm evidently not doing it right. The code I wrote is below:
I use Mozilla to develop my sites because it has neat tools like the cookie manager that help me out. So, if I look at the cookie manager in Mozilla, it tells me that the cookie is set to expire "at end of session." It does, in fact, do this.
I obviously did something wrong. Can someone tell me what I should do?

How many cookies are there with the name "userName"?
If the cookie has a different path or domain, it will be treated as a different cookie.
try deleting all cookies.
I have a few utilities that I use for stuff like this.
This forum would not let me post my code sample. I got an error message:

Sorry, your post appears to have an illegal HTML tag. Often this is because the post contains a "<" character instead of the equivalent HTML escape sequence "<"
You can fix this by replacing every "<" in your post with "<".
The specific error message is: COOKIE
� Please use your browser's back button to return.

Try to print all cookies to the JspWriter instance, out, by using a for loop.
