Dear Vlad and list members,

Vlad -- the patch works great for me, it allows me to use pine as my
default mailer, it's working great!. I compiled using slang and the only
problem I'm having so far is that the screen does not get refreshed
automatically, so when I quit pine, say, teh only visible thing is the
link, not the page. Of course I don't care about refreshing the screen.

  I encourage the application of this patch (with improvements if
necessary)  to the official distribution of lynx.

  Vlad, thanks a lot!!
