Have you tried command *deleteAllVisibleCookies*?
*deleteAllVisibleCookies()*Calls deleteCookie with recurse=true on all cookies visible to the current page. As noted on the documentation for deleteCookie, recurse=true can be much slower than simply deleting the cookies using a known domain/path.thanks,Jerry

Perhaps if it doesn't work and you need it to work, this is where you might want to start considering using Selenium RC instead (or even WebDriver). Because it supposedly works in RC.
