[PATCH] Memoize cookies so they can be retrieved in the same response / request cycle

Reported by Olly | May 28th, 2009 @ 01:40 PM | in 2.3.4

If you set a cookie in a controller action and then try and access the new value in later in the action or in the view, the old value for the cookie is retrieved because the CookieJar is re-initialized with each call to ActionController::Base#cookies.

# Contrived example
# Before patch:
def show
  cookies[:logged_in] = true
  cookies[:logged_in] # => nil

# After patch:
def show
  cookies[:logged_in] = true
  cookies[:logged_in] # => true
