I may have to retract that, based on this from line 607 of LYCookie.c:

                 *  Check if we should fold the header. - FM
                if (len > 800) {
                    StrAllocCat(header, crlftab);
                    len = 0;

(This is from the code to send cookies to the server.)

Looks like it is indeed legit to fold the header like that. I wonder if
your problem could be more due to the fact that Lynx is reversing the
order, thus sending the login/pw cookie after all of the other cookies, so
the server parses them in incorrect order.


Maximum number of cookies is hardcoded at 50. Do we want to make this user
configurable before 2.8.1? I'd say yes.
