This message never made it to lynx-dev, so I am resending it.

Someone has reported something like this before.  But nobody
has been able to provide a reproducible case.

Please try to help us figure out what the problem is, if you want to
see it fixed.  Is there a *small* set of files that shows the same
problem?  Is there anything unusual about the link (or near it) that
does not get remembered - like length, unusual characters, or anything
else?  Does this only occur after a certain (high) number of documents?
Does lynx produce any unusal messages (maybe only in a -trace logfile)?

Also make sure you have enough disk space for all generated files
(and some more to spare).
