without knowing anything about mod_python, have you tried
setting the expires section to be

Thu, 01-Jan-70 00:00:01 GMT

? (i.e. in GMT format )

what do you mean by "it works if [you] close the browser and reopen it to
the given site." ?
you mean the cookie value lingers around in a given session ? are you
checking to
see if this cookie exist on the server side code or via client-side code
like javascript or something?

I'm just grabbing stuff out of thin-air here. =)
