Don't clear login cookie on requests without cookie #3380

Clearing the secure cookie makes sense when it is invalid or expired, but clearing it when it's not sent with a request can unexpectedly log the user out.

I ran into this with misconstructed URLs which didn't incorporate base_url. That was itself a bug, but the result of suddenly being unauthenticated makes it harder to track down.

Closes gh-3365 (hopefully)
Possibly also relevant to gh-2396

I'm not sure why this seems to affect Firefox more than Chrome.
