Description of Problem:
Version 1.12 of CGI::Cookie comes with the perl-package. This is way too
old. In certain circumstances it can eat posted variables when used in
Apache with mod_perl, so that all pages that use "method=post" don't work. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Make a perl-handler for Apache (linked with mod_perl) and do 
parse CGI::Cookie($r->header_in('Cookie')). For all pages that are handled
by this handler, the parameters sended with method=post are gone!

Steps to Reproduce:
