I encountered the same problem, the screen not refreshing using the
cursor keys, on my win98SE box, however that was about a month or
so after I compiled the binary, which I did on a Win2k box, where
everything (including hotmail) went fine. I do not know why it breaks
under Win98SE, I think it maybe due to a terminal issue (I have no
environment variable called TERM and do not know to what to set it).
It's a pity that, after 20 hours of work to get lynx/win32 done, I
lost the sources. I needed some work to get pdcurses done, mostly
because it assumes an English keyboard (and I have a German one),
and because neither pdcurses nor openssl nor lynx directly have
Makefiles for Bc++ 5.5 (the free compiler edition).
If the vi keys are not the issue, you have a solution for Win98 :-(
Sorry, but I did it for myself, back then I used only Win2k, and
later thought, why not give back my efforts, the latest is a 2.8.4-pre
version at this time.
Another note: IDEA is included by default, so unless the https server
has disabled it for himself, you can use it only privately.
OTOH I know of no https site reachable which uses IDEA when the other
(client) side has 3DES-CBC, so you might be safe.
