not entirely ncurses - I ran some more tests and found I'd missed a null
pointer check in the Lynx side (it'll be in dev.23).  The Strings array
reference in expand_tiname needs the check.

-- I don't know offhand why it would break now and not before, since before
   and after my ncurses changes it would (when the capability is undefined)
   be a null pointer.  (In fact, it didn't break this morning when I first
   ran the test, but did later, using the same ~/lynx-keymaps file, when
   I went to use Lynx to check an html file for something I'm installing ;-)
