TimestampSigner should use a more precise timestamp

Generating a secure cookie using the TimestampSigner within the same second and the same data actually generates precisely the same cookie.
I'm currently developing a cookie-based session backend, and this line keeps failing as a result, because cycling the cookie isn't really cycling the cookie: https://code.djangoproject.com/browser/django/trunk/django/contrib/sessions/tests.py#L153
I've attached a small patch that fixes the problem by increasing the precision.
