I'm not really following this discussion, so this is off topic.. but
the one case of flicker that *really* gets to me that I unsuccessfully tried
to figure out way back when when I was actually looking at the lynx code
(for that bookmark file manipulation code I hope to get back to some decade)
was this:

I start up with my bookmark file as my start page, and I have multi-bookmarks
turned on.

The bookmark file draws, THEN the whole screen redraws with:
Description: Default Bookmark File
   Filepath: lynx_bookmarks.html

inserted at the beginning.

It happens ONLY upon first starting up Lynx, and doesn't happen when switching
to other bookmark pages.  This is one of the kinds of cosmetic bugs that 
are minor in the overall scheme of things, but drives me nuts.

I also just noticed that my fifth bookmark page has NO HEADER at all in it.
It just shows the 3 links I have there.  I don't know how that happened.
Maybe I made the file manually and didn't use the multi-bookmark file code
to create it?
