Bela is wrong: i have directed him -- for the 2nd time --
to the messages in the Archive which started the security flap
which resulted in the ill-thought-out piece of programming (BL's opinion)
which prevented me from saving  .lynxrc :
those messages explicitly refer to problems with anonymous users.

see also my message today (to come next) replying to LP & TD,
who have got the issue right finally ... (smile to them).
