You need to tell us more about how you are using lynx.  On what OS is
Lynx running?  Do you run lynx locally on a PC, or do you dial in to
a shell account?  Whot software (comm program) is between you and Lynx
(if you use dialin to a shell account)?

Is this caused by a specific link in your bookmarks page?  If yes, can
you isolate which 8-bit character provokes the behavior?

Yes, 2.8rel.2 is now old, the latest version is 2.8.2rel.1; but this may
or may not be related to the version.
