Cookies seem to disappear

Hi,

I am trying to use SmartCookie class to store state.  Everything works
perfectly until I exit my browser.  The next time I try to view the page
my state has been reset to the default values.  I set the 'max-age'
value like  so:

c = Cookie.SmartCookie()
c['state'] = stateDictionary
c['state']['max-age'] = '3600'
print c.output()
print

I've tried Netscape on WinNT and Linux and IE on WinNT, they all exhibit the
same behaviour.  The thing that is throwing me is that everything works until I
exit my browser.  It is as if I'm not setting the max-age correctly but
how difficult can that be?

Thanks for your help.
