Do you mean with the "-dump" or "-source" options? If so, I believe
the answer is yes, but I can't be sure whether I tested this on the
ncurses or slang build. I'll recheck. If you don't mean with the
"-dump" or "-source" options, I need more explanation of the question.

Let me go back and get the details on this. I know that I had a
problem with the cygwin terminfo, but it may have been using less,
rather than lynx, with problem wrapping text at the right margin.
I'll try to write to you privately if it is really a ncurses rather
than a lynx problem. Have you looked at the new termcap that is being
distributed with cygwin? Should I include it with a reply?
