Hmm, domain-matching cookies are trickier than I though.

I now set Savannah to use a cookie domain of "savannah.gnu.org" instead of ".savannah.gnu.org".

Does that help?

        I'm having troubles logging in into Savannah using Lynx and w3m.
        For both browsers, Savannah (correctly) diagnoses that the
        ``probe'' cookie wasn't accepted.  Lynx just silently ignores
        the cookie, while w3m shows:

This cookie was rejected to prevent security violation. [RFC 2109 4.3.2 rule 3]

        The versions are from Debian:

$ dpkg -l lynx w3m
ii  lynx           2.8.5-2        Text-mode WWW Browser
ii  w3m            0.5.1-3        WWW browsable pager with excellent tables/fr
