lynx-dev GuestWorld Guestbook Crashes Lynx 2.8rev.3

I'm having problems viewing a Guestworld guestbook using Lynx 2.8 rev.3.
Clicking on the forms submit button for viewing the next 10 messages
(or previous 10 messages or go to message number ___) crashes Lynx
with either a signal 11 error followed by an abort or my a memory fault
error.  It seems that this is caused by the large number of messages
in the list (1437) since I do not get a crash on other message boards
that only have a few hundred messages.


Relevant Screen Captures:

                            John Cowan Guestbook

   [ Messages deleted... ]
   [IMAGE(next 10)]-Submit  <<<<-------- Clicked on this

   [IMAGE(previous 10)]-Submit
   Current Record Range
   Displayed is 1437 to 1428

   ______ Go!
   Total No. of Guests 1437

Note:  Other Guestworld guestbooks with fewer message entries (100-300)
do not crash Lynx when retrieving the next group of messages.
