I am using Privoxy (personal web filtering proxy), AddBlockPlus and  
SelfDestructingCookies (Firefox extensions). I'm not sure which one is  
responsible, but when they are enabled, the cookies don't last long, when  
disabled, they do: I have 2 wikis with PersistentLogin for 30 days and they  
work fine. You may have such or different proxy or extensions, or just a  
browser setting "Menu -> Edit (or Tools or Wrench) -> Preferences (or  
Options or Settings) -> Privacy -> Cookies" that only allows session  
cookies, and it should be possible to "allow" or "whitelist" or "trust"  
cookies from your own site.
