        You are right. The following patch fixes this problem :
$ diff LYClean.C
<       HadVMSInterrupt = TRUE;
>       /* HadVMSInterrupt = TRUE; */
>       HadVMSInterrupt = TRUE;

        Also, this old reported problem can be fixed by the added patch (if 
not already done) :

$ diff LYExit.c
< #include <LYClean.h>
> #include <LYClean.h>

        i.e. <LYClean.h> should be included for VMS as well ; it was in a
#ifndef VMS  block only.

        Sorry ... In the course of the VMS-debugging wave, I forgot to 
re-include/ specify the platform/compiler/OS version etc ... I'll try not 
to forget next time.

        BTW : The CTRL/C is very handy in cases when you want to abort a 
file transfer (changed your mind) or in cases (I have seen this with 
ftp:// scheme) where Lynx hangs there (and not surprisingly Mosaic as 
well) during a directory reading doing god-knows-what. CTRL/C stops 'it'
and the directory content is actualy displayed.
