Okay, taking a look at this (I'm not going to post the trace log unless
someone wants to see it, it's long and ugly), it looks like a broken site.

If you enter the page with no cookie set, following the 'submit' link
sends you to a page (let's call it "A") which sends you a cookie and
redirects you to a page ("B"). Page "B" then redirects you to "A". Which
redirects to "B". Etc.

If you enter the page with the cookie set, the "submit" link sends you to
a different page ("I don't need to send you a cookie, go ahead"), which
doesn't do any wonky redirection.

It's broken.
