Ah, so he has, and now everything works right there.  In a way it's a
pity; it deprives us of a convenient platform to run tests upon.

Which indeed a Good Thing, but still leaves the... bug/feature/? in
place regarding (some) pages which don't have the explicit "base
href=..."  commands in their headers.

Does anyone have an answer to my original question, i.e., which
version of Lynx -- 2.7.1 or 2.8.4rel.1 -- is (well, now it's 'was')
producing the correct default base href?  (And why?)
