Actually I don't have problems on whether or not Lynx restores the partial
URL in the stack.  However, I do have problems on Lynx's inability to stop
the URL transfer initiated by a guessing process by pressing 'z' as Lynx
does on 'exact' URL transfers.

eg:  Lynx can't be stopped after I type '' except
        killing the process.
     Lynx stopped quickly if I type ''.
