Turns out to be a combination of factors, all of them unrelated to WebKit.

The server in question is Jetty, with a 4096 byte limit on the entire HTTP
request.  The OpenID authentication process uses a relatively large cookie
(about 1.5 KB) and long URLs with lots of data encoded in them.  Combined with
the standard headers used by the Safari and Chrome user agents, this overflows
Jetty's request limit.  (Other browsers must be using slightly smaller user
agent and accept headers, and thus avoid the overflow.)

- Increasing the Jetty request buffer is one possible solution.
- Switching the OpenID peers to using POST based requests is another.

Neither of which has anything to do with WebKit, or a browser implementing it.
