PDCurses wasn't broken -- Lynx was. Specifically, it made an implicit assumption
about the value of ERR. My patch just makes it explicit.

I don't actually like my patch, but it was the minimum change I could make
without disrupting anything else. What I'd really prefer would be a massive
rewrite of Lynx's keyboard handling. Maybe I'll try that one of these days...
