Fix the case when the cookie string started with "; " #117

wants to merge 1 commit into from

We have seen sometimes IE 7 returns a cookie string starting with "; ", since the first cookie value in this case would be null, using $.cookie() to get other cookie values will always return null.


Probably the same as #88.


Should be combined or be fixed anyway with #104.
