I've used various versions of libslang and your slrn news reader under
Linux, and I can testify that the screen gets occasionally corrupted.
This seems to happen, but much more so, under the cygwin Windows 95/NT
version of lynx.exe, so a user would be typing CTRL-W several times during
a lynx session to get rid of extraneous text characters.  The partial
solution is to tune up the Linux console termcap entry, but there still
are occasional problems.

; To UNSUBSCRIBE:  Send a mail message to address@hidden
;                  with "unsubscribe lynx-dev" (without the
;                  quotation marks) on a line by itself.
