This simply means that someone is trying to use (send/receive) the packet-
driver after it's released. i.e. after stop_curses() is called.
Seems to be caused by wrong call order for some atexit() functions.

Anyway, the message is only important to developers. Maybe Watt-32 
in Lynx should remove this message. It's macro ASSERT_INF() in .\src\pcpkt.c
