I figured it out!

I tried the req.log_error(str(cookie)) thing again, and this time in the right
location (oops). Then the problem became obvious.

Since I had set the locale to Icelandic, the date in the cookie had Icelandic
in it and that's why it didn't work. After I set the locale back to english
there were no problems. 

Thanks a lot for your help!
