           Summary: Httplistener sends cookies in a comma-separated list,
                    browsers don't like that

example with source code

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:
Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13

RFC-2109 mentions multiple cookies can be sent in a single "Set-Cookie" header
separated by comma. This is how HttpListener does it but none of the browsers
accept that. Browsers need one Set-Cookie header for each cookie.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run HttpListenerDemo/bin/Debug/HttpListenerDemo.exe This program sets 2
cookies (x=1, y=2)
2. Open
3. Use browser plugins to view header and cookie values.
Actual Results:  
See this screen shot:

A single Set-Cookie header is sent:
Set-Cookie: x=1,y=2

And Firefox and other browsers thinks it is a single cookie "x" with value

Expected Results:  
It should send one Set-Cookie header for each cookie.
Set-Cookie: x=1
Set-Cookie: y=2

I have attached an application that demonstrates the bug.
