Works just fine for me.

Are you sure that the page is not finishing loading and that you are 
just seeing a problem with the screen updating?  The screen updating 
doesn't work well in elinks, nor in links (at least on Cygwin); I have 
noticed in both programs that the wrong lines on the screen are 
highlighted for entry boxes and that various regions of the screen are 
not cleaned up when the screen changes.  I wouldn't doubt it if you are 
seeing the page load but that the status line doesn't get wiped on your 
screen.  Is that what is happening, or is the page never even rendered?
