just retested: i start Lynx 2-8-5dev.6 , goto ,
enter `v' when asked to accept a cookie,
enter `10g' to follow numbered link [10] `Ontario' & i get (edited a bit):

  A Fatal error has occurred in Lynx Ver. 2.8.5dev.6
  Please notify your system administrator to confirm a bug,
  and if confirmed, to notify the lynx-dev list.
  Bug reports should have concise descriptions of the command
  and/or URL which causes the problem,
  the operating system name with version number,
  the TCPIP implementation, and any other relevant information.  
  Do NOT mail the core file if one was generated.  
  Lynx now exiting with signal:  11  

this happens whenever i try to follow a link with a number + `g':
it's ok when i simply enter the number or a number + `p';
it also happens when i test with a local directory by `lynx .'.

OS is Mandrake Linux 6.2 , desktop is KDE 1.1.1 ; Lynx configured with:

  ./configure --with-screen=ncurses --disable-menu-options
  --enable-default-colors --enable-prettysrc --enable-read-eta
  --enable-source-cache --enable-externs --enable-cgi-links
  --enable-nsl-fork --disable-persistent-cookies --enable-gzip-help
  --disable-finger --disable-gopher --disable-dired --disable-long-list
