When setting a cookie with setcookie(), if the expires parameter is a positive integer, the PHP child process segfaults.

Environment; Apache 2.2.12, PHP 6.0-200908152030, Ubuntu 9.10 alpha3 linux kernel 2.6.31 64bit.

Reproduce code:

    header('Set-Cookie: cookie1=foo1; expires=Sun, 16-Aug-2009 16:39:00 GMT; secure; HttpOnly', TRUE, 200); // works
    setcookie('cookie2', 'foo2',); // works
    setcookie('cookie3', 'foo3', -3600); // works
    setcookie('cookie4', 'foo4', 3600); // segfaults

    echo '<pre>';

Expected result:
$_COOKIE array dumped to screen

Actual result:
Apache error log:
[Sun Aug 16 19:06:38 2009] [notice] child pid 22565 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
