Thanks.  This may solve my crash.  But it still feels wrong to me.
many single-byte EBCDIC characters are upper-128.  The crash happened
to me when Lynx was erroneously using multibyte logic to process
a single-byte upper-128 character.  This is wrong even when the
character is in the interior of a string.  It just happens to cause
the crash when the character is at the end of the string.
