I made a test, fill up the form input
until maximum length was reached (~1000bytes)
and it was successfully submitted with Lynx2.8.2dev.14 on Linux
(though, I got a screen moved one line up and text was messed until
I made a refresh with CTRL-W; it is ncurses 1.99e and lynx in trace mode).

The problem still may exist with other platforms/compilers
so report from latest dev version always welcome
supplied with the attached trace log - just press CTRL-T
before pressing a "submit" button and send us if you got a crash.
