I have done some testing of the latest lynx.exe.  It reads in page 1 of
an old XMosaic bookmark file, then freezes.  If I press a key, it reads
in page 2 and freezes.  And, so on.  Enclosed is the text of the screen

AUTO                                                Hotlist from root (p1 of 2)

   Bookmark file

          Internet Newspapers

Read 4 KB of data.  80.00 KB/sec.

(It freezes after reading the first 4KB.)  If I push a key like `Q', it
reads the next page:

Read 8 KB of data.   0.32 KB/sec.

etc., etc.

If one of the developers knows where in lynx the code was changed so that
not reading from the keyboard blocks something, let me know.  I used the
same slang library for release 1 of lynx2.8.2, and it works with no
problems and none of the above.
