It's pretty obvious.  The Windows versions had strange problems, you
say.  So you "grab" the code for non-Windows for the Windows case,
*away* from the non-Windows case.  That's exactly what changing the
#ifndef to #ifdef does.

To humor you, I actually tried it.  Yep, now lynx on linux has "very strange
problems" indeed, just as expected.  I assume just the same kind of thing
that you must have seen on Windows before the "grab".  Lynx seems to hang
when retrieving a document (or even looking up a name), but you can pace it
through its steps by hitting a key (like simply spacebar) a lot.

(Btw regarding a different topic - it's in this strange "paced" mode that
I first noticed a problem with Tom Zerucha's proxy hanging (and it wouldn't
recover even when pacing lynx through).  iirc.)
