You will get that complain every IRIX 6.2 user which uses winterm :-)

Notice that I was not that person which was problems.

I do not use winterm either.

I'm afrain that you can not avoid these complain without be
prepared to accept KEY_ENTER also. After all lynx installation
can not change terminfo defination, so that is only solution to you.

Or you can declare "That is know problem and will not be fixed."
