LYNX-DEV lynx troubles with Cyrillic

I'm using the current Lynx for Win32
(User-Agent: Lynx/2.7.1ac-0.49 libwww-FM/2.14FM).
It contains all available screen Cyrillic charsets
(KOI8-R, ISO8859-5, DosCyrillic(cp866) and WinCyrrillic(cp1251)),
but these all (!) don't works right. Always I see unreadable
texts, for example:

"Yoi ae`aai`ay nodh`aieoe`a oidh`aaeaiey nadhaadhi`i yeaeodhiiiie
ii/ou. Eniieuecoy a, Au `iiaeaoa ec`iaieoue e`ae iauea aeey anaai"

(this showed when I set display charset to WinCyrillic and source
HTML page is in WinCyrrillic(cp1251) also). When I set the DosCyrrilic,
I see _the same_ (for this WinCyrillic-encoded page). These boss are
wrong! If I set "Raw 8-bit mode", I see the cp1251 text on cp866
console (i.e. unconverted), and this also unreadable :(

Consoles in Win32 by default viewed in "OEM" code page (for Cyrillic
OEM=cp866=DOS_code_page). When reading WinCyrrilic(cp1251) HTML
document lynx must convert cp1251->cp866 for right display it.
(Windows function "CharToOemBuff" does so, you can use it).
May be lynx console library does someone else...

Please help me!
