Sorry for the lack of details; I was a bit rushed earlier.

Any site, AFAICT.  Just starting lynx with no parameters goes to, with the "Lynx
2.8.3" link highlighted.  Pressing the right arrow key gets:

A Fatal error has occurred in Lynx Ver. 2.8.4rel.1

Please notify your system administrator to confirm a bug, and
if confirmed, to notify the lynx-dev list.  Bug reports should
have concise descriptions of the command and/or URL which causes
the problem, the operating system name with version number, the
TCPIP implementation, and any other relevant information.

Do NOT mail the core file if one was generated.

Lynx now exiting with signal:  11

signal code = SIGSEGV
      6 [sig] bash 3812 open_stackdumpfile: Dumping stack trace to bash.exe.stackdump

and no bash prompt comes back.
