Problem with httpc_cookie:fix_netscape_cookie/2

Hi all,

  I found an oddity while using httpc with cookies enabled.
  A well-known web site replies with this header:

{"set-cookie","visit=G; Expires=Tue, 17-May-2078 17:34:56 GMT; Path=/"},

httpc_cookie:fix_netscape_cookie/2 is not pleased when that happens. It  
does not see the upper case 'E' of 'Expires', and cannot "fix" the cookie.

Here is the patch I used to make it work.
