Nope, it still doesn't work for me.  I unaliased lynx so that I wasn't missing
error messages (I usually use -nopause).

As far as I can tell in my simple experiments, the first time I hit dot, the
message at the bottom of the screen flickers and repaints.  But there is 
no error message being printed.  (I do not have pause turned off!!  I 
paranoidly checked this several times.)

But it's not running w3m.  I also added the full path to sh just in case.

An even better version of this (once something is working) would be to get 
screen to open a new 'window' to run w3m in on the page, then when I quit 
w3m, to switch back to the original Lynx session.  I don't know if screen is
this sophisticated though.
