Possible cookies issue in Google Chrome (but not in IE8 or FF3)

I have a message board which users seem to have troubles logging into when using Google Chrome.  The weird thing is, they had no troubles logging in with Google Chrome before.  Also, there are no issues with logging with Internet Explorer 8 or Firefox 3 (the board is almost 4 years old and there's never been a login issue).

My message board by the way is
http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/

So I'm wondering if Google Chrome has an issue with storing cookies or a problem with updating them.  I can't seem to figure out what would be causing this issue but below is the code used to create the cookies
setcookie('loguserid',$userid,2147483647);
     setcookie('logpassword',shenc($password),2147483647);
	 
	 setcookie('loguserid',$userid,2147483647,"/");

Do you have a test login so we can drive some tests with Chrome?

You are not alone, btw, it seems to be a bug with Chrome: http://getsatisfaction.com/google/topics/chrome_losing_forgetting_cookies_after_a_while

I assume you have already checked the cookie settings and tested with "allow all cookies" just to be sure it isn't an issue with that: http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/support/blog/chrome-cookies

You can sign up for a free account, only takes a minute and than you can test it out that way.  However, if it's your first time to the site the login will work just fine, it's when you try logging in sometime in the future is when the problem occurs, only solution I've seen is clearing cookies but that just seems like a big hassle for a lot of users.

That looks much like the reported Chrome problem to me... in which case your best bet is to hope that they fix it some day.

You may try to be more specific with the cookies. I.e., not ".mysite.com" but "www.mysite.com". Or the other way around, be less specific, i.e. path = / instead of path = /somedir/. But I doubt whether it will help.

btw: I'm still waiting for my confirmation / activation mail...

Just received it. Tried to sign up, but whatever I try, I get "You have forget to enter something.Please go back with back button on your browser.Thanks.         ". No idea what "something" is, I get it when all fields are filled. I used Firefox 3.0. Haven't used Chrome yet. So far I don't seem to be able to sign up at all.

I did that, several times (01-01-1900). I did now 01-01-1910, which worked.

tried a couple of Chrome sessions. Do you have some hints on how I can get the erroneous behavior? I'll check the cookies as well..
