Cookie expires inaccuratelyby BioHazard (Pilgrim)

BioHazard has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am working on a cookie-managed community system but my cookies expire too inaccurately, in detail: too early.
I am using Apache 1.27x on a Win32 (NT 5.1) machine, ActiveState Perl 5.6 and the module CGI.
With the script shown below, the cookie is supposed to expire 10 minutes after being set. I have counted the time and found out that it actually expired after 8 minutes and ~50 seconds. When I do this test again with -expires => "+30s", the cookie won't be set at all.
Do you have any Ideas how this problem can be solved?
reading between the lines is my real pleasure
