When cookielib.CookieJar().make_cookies is used to extract cookies from a urllib2 response, it crashes when it encounters a 'Set-Cookie' header entry that has an 'expires' attribute.

This crash occurs because the expires time is evaluated against the '_now' attribute of the CookieJar instance -- an attribute which is not set unless CookieJar().extract_cookies() was called previously.

Attached is a script that triggers this bug.
