Are you sure the problem isn't libwww? I have a feeling that some email address seeking web crawlers are based on libwww as well. People may be using the false logic that anything used by spammers is only used by them. (Lynx's crawl mode may also be being used by spammers).

no (more than one reason). The url I noted is looking for "lynx", "links" and other words. The previous discussion I pointed out that _either_ "lynx" or "libwww" in the user agent triggered the 406.
