WebSphere & Cookie Expires Format

On IBM Websphere 7.0 all session cookie related test cases might fail. This happens because of the following bug in Websphere 

Here are some details : 
Based on RFCs, the cookie expire date format is  DD-Mon-YYYY HH:MM:SS GMT. (RFC 822RFC 850RFC 1036, and RFC 1123)

But in WebSphere 7 it comes as  DD-Mon-YY HH:MM:SS GMT

So on the browsers which doesn't recognize this expire date format, ColdFusion administrator and other session related stuffs (which uses session cookies) may break.
