Resizing of the lynx display window (xterm or Sun's shelltool)
didn't seem to work properly, at least when using ordinary curses,
and particularly if you tried to make the display larger.

I have previously posted (June 20) some mods to lynx-dev to fix this:
they're nor particularly elegant, but they appear to work for me.
However, these mods seem to have been largely ignored by the main
lynx developers.  Perhaps if this is once again a live issue someone
could examine them?
