"FORCE_SSL_COOKIES_SECURE:TRUE" keeps me from logging in via the
https:// route.  When you get routed from the https:// login to the
http:// mail page, it doesn't know what to do with the secure
cookie.  I'm guessing, anyway.  I'd always just left it set TRUE
(more secure is better, right?), until I recently had the same
problem with another site, and stumbled on why.

Anyway, with dev2, and:

   [Note: SET_COOKIES is what is toggled by -cookies.  When you
   used "lynx -cookies" (in another message), you just turned
   them off]

I have no problem with yahoo's secure login.  I just noticed a
couple of those settings (ACCEPT & LOOSE_INVALID_DOMAINS) are
redundant, but what the hey.

I think I'll go compile the new version, now :)
