> Is this repeateable?  Did it happen with one file, or with several?

Yes, although I have not found the size barrier.  It has happened now
on four files, two of which I have confirmed to be intact.

> Did you have -partial on?  Does it make a difference?

I compile with "--disable-partial."  I'll append my compile options below.

> Did you have SOURCE_CACHE on?  Does it make a difference?

I hope not, but I'm not sure how to turn it on or off, so whatever the
default is.

> Did you try keys other than ^G (like up-arrow etc.)

Not yet.  I'd like to try now, but on my overloaded LAN it takes 30 min.
or more to download a file that will trigger the problem.  I'll try
tomorrow morning.

> What does it do when it hangs?

Nothing; just sits there with the message.

> Does it consume CPU time?

I wouldn't know how to determine this.

> What do lsof/truss/strace... say?

Don't know about these.  Do you want me to do ^T before pressing
'D', and send you the last part of the Lynx.trace log?

> And, sorry but I have to ask... did you 'make clean'?

Built from a completely fresh breakout.  (But I've got my "zapfile"
patch on (
so I'll have to recompile again anyway.  Might as well move up to dev.17.
