problem setting multiple cookies

I'm using unicorn 3.6.2

What I was trying to say is that the JoinCookie middleware didn't do
anything. headers["Set-Cookie"] is a string, and the _test_session
cookie was always being set correctly. The problem happens only when I
try to set multiple cookies myself.

Here's the output of p headers in JoinCookie again

{"X-Runtime"=>"92", "Content-Type"=>"text/html",
"Content-Length"=>"1", "Set-Cookie"=>"first=;;
path=/; expires=Thu, 01-Jan-1970 00:00:00 GMTsecond=1;; path=/; expires=Mon, 21-Jun-2021 03:35:30
path=/; HttpOnly", "Cache-Control"=>"no-cache"}

Where is JoinCookie is getting it's headers from?
