My .lynx_cookies file doesn't contain any _duplicate_ cookies, i.e.,
cookies that are identical to each other, but it does contain many
instances of multiple cookies that seem to apply to the same site.

For example, if I grep for "", I get:      TRUE    /       FALSE   1271361600      B       
3qvsn38t74986&b=2      TRUE    /       FALSE   1271361600      U       
mt=mchCeJ2MhYsppd4m1baBKCfVsFi4PC.xHr0-&ux=lvnW.A&un=6hqisftoagn37      TRUE    /       FALSE   1271361600      Y       
v=1&n=6hqisftoagn37&l=m3ij0hhrzvx/o&p=m1p022m811000h00&r=7e&lg=us&intl=us      TRUE    /       FALSE   1271361600      T

v=1&l=us_MA20483&zip=02134       FALSE   /       FALSE   1334187663      PRF     s=1

Ignoring the last two, that's four different cookies that apply to  (No, I don't know what any of them mean.)

Is Lynx supposed to be storing multiple cookies like that?  If
so, which one (or is it all of them?) is supposed to get sent to when it asks Lynx for my cookie(s)?
