I suspect so.  unfortunately, since the time I submitted the brief problem
report, there was a death in the family and now most of the details of
the specific events are rather scattered in my brain.

Using ^V ^e in a textarea field to drop into my editor, then to read an
amount of text (again - sorry I can't give you more specifics...)
into the file, then left the editor, responded n to the wrapping question
(I _never_ want to answer yes there - too bad I can't tell lynx not to bother
asking me that question) and then pressing the send button to 'submit the form'
(I assume) to yahoo.

Thanks for looking at the trace.  I would like to take a crack at building
17, but right now, I'm having concentration problems...  perhaps after a bit
of rest this evening I can get on from home and make some progress.
