Wrong. It's Windows. It seems there may be some kind of conflict between the 
way the djgpp lynx port mangages either screen writes or memory and windows 
and other programs created using djgpp since I can run these other djgppp
programs under both dos and windows with no problems whatsoever. 

If your "DJGPP's Castrated DPMI" claim was true, I wouldn't be able to run
ANY these other djgpp-complied programs under windows either since they all 
make use of "DJGPP's Castrated DPMI" as you put it. (BTW, in case you didn't
know djgpp programs when run under windows make use of window's DPMI server
as I recall) so if there are in fact problems in the dos lynx port related 
to the use of DPMI the problem lies in windows, not djgpp.
