The Win32 version also exhibits some strange behavior with colors on
popups.  They change color when they are passed over, and the border
surrounding the popup also changes once you actually start moving the
cursor.  Well, I can't get the border to act up again, so maybe it was
just because the particular list I was looking at had some very long items
in it.  All versions of lynx seem to display things unusually if the
select item is long enough to need word wrapping.  The colors appear
exactly as you mentioned above.  It's been so long since I tried a slang
binary, that I can't remember how it dealt with popups.
