I have run into a few websites so sloppily misdesigned that they will
infinite-loop trying to set a cookie if the client does not accept it.
(As a hypothetical example, if redirects to, which tries to set a cookie in the same
response as a redirect back to, then a
cookie-ignoring client, like lynx -cookies, will infinite loop,
bouncing back and forth between those two URLs.)

Perhaps the run seeing the loop had lynx up to ignore cookies?
