Well, the obvious and pleasant solution is

1)  reverse the order of authentication and lockfile creation
    This is an exploitable security hole, seems to me.

2)  if the cookie is expired and the bruiser is Exploder, post a page
    explaining the bug and giving download links for real browsers. :-)
