I did this, using my old and new lynx and  Old lynx -noredir 
takes me right to my personalized onelist page; new lynx -noredir takes
me right to the generic login page.  No redirections apparently are involved.

Using the same cookie file, the new lynx is missing almost all of the
cookie info that the old one had.

Old Cookie jar page:
          [161] (Cookies allowed via prompt.)
          Port: 80 Secure: NO Discard: NO
          Maximum Gobble Date: Thu Nov 23 18:59:59 2000

New Cookie jar page:
 no cookie info at all for the site.

Note that the other cookies listed are dramatically different as well:

Here's all that the new page says:

                                                                    Cookie Jar

                   Lynx (2.8.3dev.15), help on [1]Cookie Jar 
     NOTE: Activate links to gobble up cookies or entire domains, or to
     change a domain's 'allow' setting.

          [5] (Cookies always allowed.)
          [6] (Cookies always allowed.)
          [7] (Cookies allowed via prompt.)

Meanwhile , the old cookie page lists all the cookie info.

Did something significant happen in what gets output to the Jar page?
