Sounds rational to me that the version string sent to servers is vanilla.
I don't know a wise -version string -- I am game for anything.

From userdefs.h:

#define LYNX_VERSION "2.7wb+ct-0.4"

That will bring it back to normal.  It is my opinion that there should be
a more dev type name in FatalProblem() from LYMain.c and also the
following snippit also from LYMain.c:

    } else if (strncmp(argv[0], "-version", 8) == 0) {
        printf("\n%s Version %s\n(c)1997 GNU General Public License\n\
                LYNX_NAME, LYNX_VERSION);
