It probably is. I don't recall at the moment (and don't have a VMS system
handy to test at the moment), but "2.8.3" sounds like the interim version
that I submitted for the freeware cdrom.  2.8.4 "should" work at least as
well. But I didn't experiment with changing the definition of TEMP_SPACE.
Reading the related code, it's not obvious whether it will handle various
types of definitions (the ']' is a little different from a ':').  Perhaps
making it a rooted logical would work better for you.  Note that you can
experiment with this by defining the LYNX_TEMP_SPACE logical.
