Excuse the new thread (just signed up to bug-gnu-emacs list, whereas I
filed the original bug via the report function).

I've pinpointed the eww-mode bug to an issue with #'date-to-time in
time-date.el.

It appears to be a manifestation of the Year 2038 problem and caused by
the fact that the cookie being sent has an expiration date beyond year
2038.

As it turns out, I am unable to reproduce the issue on a 64-bit machine
(it only happens on my 32-bit ones).

Would it be better to rework #'date-to-time to handle future dates in a
more graceful manner on 32-bit machines, or to have eww-mode ignore
triggers that cause it to parse dates it cannot handle?

This fixes the problem with date-to-time on 32-bit hosts, since it now throws the correct exception rather than the incorrect one, so I'm closing this bug report. I'm leaving Bug#19798 open for now, until you can verify that the original eww issue is indeed fixed on the master.
