	What version of Lynx are you using?  In the default compile up
until 2.8, there just isn't this feature.


	The latest available is v2.8.4.  But if you compile your own
Lynx with the --enable-persistent-cookies flag, then unexpired cookies
will be stored between sessions in the filename set with the COOKIE_FILE
option in your .lynxrc.
