This was also reported to lynx-dev, see this month's list archive.

It's not a bug in lynx, but in the documents that contain such links.

Quoting from RFC 2396:

   5. Relative URI References
   Authors should be aware that a path segment which contains a colon
   character cannot be used as the first segment of a relative URI path
   (e.g., "this:that"), because it would be mistaken for a scheme name.
   It is therefore necessary to precede such segments with other
   segments (e.g., "./this:that") in order for them to be referenced as
   a relative path.
