Has anyone successfully ordered on with Lynx (with SSL if necessary)?

I *think* I have in the past, but now I'm not so sure.

I'm getting:
   Microsoft VBScript runtime
   error '800a000d'

   Type mismatch: 'CInt'

   /shop/xt_manage_cart.asp, line 356

1) Search for item
2) Add to cart
3) Checkout Now

This happened both with Lynx normally and spoofing Mozilla
(specifically: 'Mozilla/4.5 [en] (lynx 2.8.2)').

Strangely, emailing their customer service resulted in a canned response
saying in part:
Thank you for your email regarding the problem you experienced while 
browsing on our site. We appreciate your taking the time to write to us,
and we have researched the problem already.

We identified a technical problem that caused the difficulty you 
experienced (please fill in the date here).  Please be assured that we 
are working to resolve this as quickly as possible.

and they also offered free shipping on my order.

Yet I just successfully ordered with IE, and trying Lynx again (to make
sure it WASN'T a temporary problem that was fixed) causes the same

So basically I'm not sure if I should take them up on their free shipping 
offer (I'm a big bargain hunter, but if it really IS Lynx's fault I'm not
going to take advantage of them)...

and mostly I want to be able to order with Lynx in the future if I do order
from them again...

BTW, the book about Xerox, "Fumbling the Future" is back in print (actually
Amazon & contract with some print-on-demand company apparently), and
with a coupon and if I do the free shipping thing, it'll be under $5, plus a
few percent more back through heh heh..  (I did the above steps
WITHOUT ebates to make sure that wasn't causing the problem somehow.)
