Since 2.8.6dev.5, Lynx seems to unescape '\' twice in command line
which is indicated in mailcap file.

For example, we have to write
   image/jpeg; C\:\\\\APP\\\\IVIEW\\\\I_VIEW32.EXE %s
to call C\:\APP\IVIEW\I_VIEW32.EXE.
Until 2.8.6dev.4, we can write
   image/jpeg; C\:\\APP\\IVIEW\\I_VIEW32.EXE %s
to call the same command.

Is this a change with any reason?

no - looking at the changes for dev.5, I don't see any that should have
altered this behavior.  It sounds like a bug, then.

Changes related to mailcap in dev.5:

* modified mailcap command and testcommand substitutions to provide for
  running the testcommand's after program initialization (prompted by review
  of Debian #167200, which gave as example a mailcap using %{charset} in the
  test commands) -TD

I like previous behavior.
