I have been invoked!  ;-}

I've been reading lynx-dev only intermittently for the last couple of
years, but have been watching it fairly closely for a couple of weeks
(no particular reason).

Anyway, I don't remember the specific case you're referring to, but I
can think of other things for Arne to try.

The main one that comes to mind is: see what happens if a pty-using
program is interjected between the Sybase calling program and Lynx.  I
mean something like `script`.  Arne mentioned having Sybase start a
shell, then manually running Lynx from that shell, and having the same
bad behavior.  So the test would be: have Sybase start a shell; run
script in that shell; run Lynx inside script.

This is intended to separate the problem into something at the terminal
end (like having been programmed to the wrong keypad mode) vs. something
inside the kernel (like the tty being in a crazy state).  It does not
perfectly accomplish this, because if the tty's in a crazy state it will
probably also affect a pty running on it.  Still, I think something
interesting might be learned.

Other than that, when checking stty settings, be sure to write both sets
to a file and diff the files.  It's easy to miss differences by eye.
