Every time a visitor visits a new page that has Piwik tracking installed a new cookie is created. If the number of such pages per day (before cookies start to expire) comes to a certain limit the visitor starts getting Bad Request page because the header length of the HTTP request becomes too big.
For example we use Piwik to track visitors interactive RE tours (http://seetheproperty.com/1100). Each tour is considered as a separate website. We have thousands of them.
So as an end buyer browses through different tours in the search for a suitable home header length is being increased until the end buyer starts getting Bad Request error.
