  Thanks to everyone that helped out.  We've been scratching our heads
for some time on this problem, and we're still baffled as to why it
happens.  We've determined that executing a new shell by logging in or
su'ing alleviates the problem.  This makes sense, since you're actually
starting a new session, but it's not a solution to our problem.  We
were, however, able to use Links successfully.  As of now, we've no clue
why Lynx exhibits this problem and Links does not.  It may have
something to do with Lynx using fgets() and Links using read(), but
that's just a guess.
  It seems obvious that Lynx does not like whatever our main application
does to file descriptors (stdin, stdout, etc).  Since we've no clue, nor
the time to really dig into this, we're forced to switch to Links. 
Thanks again to everyone who helped us out.  The discussion has been
most enlightening.
