I downgraded to dev.16 and can't reproduce the problem. I also
noticed that dev.18 uses a lot of RAM comparing to dev.16 and
dev.15. FYI, I have 256Mb of RAM. dev.18 would use ~8% in
a few minutes, and loading small pages (~50K maximum). dev.16
is using ~2%.

I think the following problem was reported by Ilya -

Go to with dev.18
Don't forget to use the arrow keys (up and down). I see garbage
using the arrow keys. You may need to follow 'Slackware Devel'
or another Forum.

BTW Thomas, I downgraded using the patches, and noticed the

dev.18 -> dev.17

patching file src/LYStrings.h
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n] y
This file doesn't appear to be the 1.41 version -- patch anyway? [n]

dev.17 -> dev.16

patching file src/LYStructs.h
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n] y
This file doesn't appear to be the 1.40 version -- patch anyway? [n]

I cd to lynx2-8-4 and use patch -p1 < /path/to/patch

I didn't change src/LYStructs.h and am patching since dev.10 -> dev.11.
