#2999: 'bp-wizard-step' cookie in setup/upgrader not cleared

 The 'bp-wizard-step' cookie, as used in the setup/upgrader process, is not
 cleared until the process completes successfully. That is correct
 behaviour, but as a result of developing on core, I've noticed that if I
 re-install WordPress part-way through the BuddyPress setup process (i.e.
 when the cookie is set), when the BuddyPress setup process is run a second
 time, the cookie is not cleared.

 This results in the setup process jumping to the wrong step of the
 installation, and this can cause BuddyPress to think that it is fully set
 up before it actually is, leading to fatal PHP errors.
