That's not really the problem.  The issue is that there are Apache
rewrite rules you can use to map most of your MM2.0 lists and MM2.1
lists to the same url space.  That means your browser will return both
cookies in the http request because it doesn't know that they're
really separate urls.  You don't want to expire your MM2.0 cookies
since you may still have to admin that older list.  You just don't
want those other cookies to cause a false error in the cookie parsing

Try the patch; I'm pretty confident it'll work.
