Return Date header values in HTTP format

When you retrieve a header value from a DirContextURLConnection, it currently returns a string by simply calling .toString() on the internal object, no matter the type of that Object.  For Date value headers such as 'Last-Modified', this results in a String formatted according to Java standards, rather than the Date format specified by the HTTP standard as clients of the API would expect.

This is a follow-up to bug 44611.

The patch has been committed to 6.0.x and will be in 6.0.17 onwards.

Again, thanks for the patch.
