  WIth the patch I sent, if STICKY_INPUTS is FALSE (sticky-of-the-1st-kind)
 - ie if the user has to activate text field before editing it, then pressing 
 key-left in non-activated input field will return to the previous document
independant of STICKY_FIELDS (well, if old behaviour is in effect wrt
sticky-of-the-2st-kind, and text field was modified, then lynx will ask

set STICKY_INPUTS to FALSE in lynx.cfg
