I tested the patch with lynx 2.8.5dev.3 and lynx 2.8.4rel.1b.

It seems the patch fixed the problem almost completely
and reduced the whole page blinking very well, as far as 
I tested.

And it seems there is no side-effect for lynx with slang library.

The only one problem I found is; when I setted

EXTERNAL:ftp:w3m %s:TRUE
EXTERNAL:file:w3m %s:TRUE
EXTERNAL:http:w3m %s:TRUE
EXTERNAL:http:wget %s:TRUE
EXTERNAL:http:wget -r %s:TRUE
EXTERNAL:ftp:netscape %s:TRUE
EXTERNAL:file:netscape %s:TRUE
EXTERNAL:http:netscape %s:TRUE

and press , (comma key) then small window appeared in top right
corner to select external commands and I pressed enter key
(i.e. select w3m) then the characters which was covered under 
the small window appeared again but they were not correct (i.e. 
Mojibake occured!).

Of course, this happend in Japanese pages.

It seems the problem occured on kterm but not on krxvt
(but not so sure yet...).
