Great...I think this will solve the problem some of our users are
experiencing where they're being prompted multiple times/session for
login info.  The logincookies table shows different values for the last
8 bits even from a stationary machine.

substituted.  What it returns still looks like an IP address, with no
leading zeros.  So if you give it xxx.yyy.zzz.www with a loginnetmask of
24, it'll return xxx.yyy.zzz.0
