Little bug with resetting cookie

A little bug discovered recently by our team, which affects the default version of authorization file bb_cookie.php. MiniBB will try to reset authorization cookie i.e. make it living longer, if its expiration time stands closely to $cookie_expires setting's value.

In such case, the cookie is being set improperly in the current version, so instead of improving the cookie, it may be completely deleted instead.

Here is a very simple fix: locate the code which says

if($resetCookie) {

if($resetCookie) {

You should add FALSE to the end of the function.

Will be fixed in the next miniBB version.
