Interesting.  I've actually noticed this behavior on HP-UX, and never
connected it to NSL_FORK.  After being in Lynx for sometime, I get an
error trying to connect to a host, and I can't connect to ANYWHERE.
Quitting and restarting will fix it.  I haven't tried on 2.7 yet (just got
the official release plus bugfixes compiled last night, even updated help
and man pages).

Can you give more details about the nature of the error?
