The problem was indeed in the function that you suggest:  It is an

#ifndef _WINDOWS
#ifdef USE_SLANG

that should read:

#ifdef _WINDOWS
#ifdef USE_SLANG

Once you correct the strange misspelling of ifndef above, you get a
working - and stable - lynx.exe for both slang and pdcurses.  I posted
the pdcurses version of November 3 source on alt.binaries.misc, just so
you can see this.

Of course, the mouse still does not work under pdcurses, but it does
work under slang.

Also, I posted elsewhere that the display corruption problem that occurs
when calling viewers can be traced to XSystem.c and its implementation
of system_command.  I changed the code to make system_command call vanilla
system(cmd), and the display corruption problem went away for _both_ slang
and pdcurses.

Sorry, no diffs, unless someone has the diff program ported to Windoze.
