You shouldn't rely on your filter already executed, and should
instead register a variable handler which does the actual work.
This way it will work at any time.

If there are conditions when you should not add a cookie I would
recommend you implementing a variable with full Cookie header you
want to pass, e.g.

fastcgi_param HTTP_COOKIE $my_new_cookie;

This way you may implement arbitrary conditions you want in your
module. (You may also construct the variable using if/set/map/etc, but
doing appropriate tests in your module would be less error prone.)
