I built a copy of dev.9 to see if I get the same problem, but do not.  (The
dev.8/dev.9 change should not affect this - I think, since the effect was
simply to leave behind undeleted some of the temp-files).  If you find
something that I can reproduce, though, I'll look harder (it's possible
that one of those substitutions of inline code to LYSkipBlanks, for
example, is "wrong" - there were a lot, and I did find a couple of coding
errors while doing that).

Anyway - for a couple of days I have bugs to fix in vile/ncurses/xterm,
so I figure that by the time I'm done with those lynx will have some bugs.
