Yes it helps, but I don't really understand what you did to get that
message.  Normally it should only appear (probably in a Lynx.trace file)
when you run with -trace or turn tracing on with ^T.  Is that what you

I don't know what mshell is/does; either for some reason it doesn't
let you see all the same output, or maybe you are running a different
copy of lynx (if there is more than one) because the search path is
different?  What version are you using?  Is it compliled in some
unusal way?  Maybe with SOCKS support?  What version are you using

Did you compile lynx yourself?  Did you try to recompile?

The is a system dependent error number; you should hunt for its
definition in the system C header file /usr/include/errno.h or one of
the files #include'd by it.

On my linux system it is defined as
#define EBADF            9      /* Bad file number */
in /usr/include/asm/errno.h, but that could be different for AIX.

I would like to help figure out what goes wrong, but we need more
info from you, or someone else who can reproduce the problem.
Try to generate a Lynx.trace file and send it to the list; better
too much than too little info.
