lynx-dev relative URL handling bug

 Just found a page on some site, it's URL was something like
The page contained broken relative references of the form:
(broken since the page they were contained has no directory part).
Following these links made lynx visit 
I.e. the site name was trimmed when computing absolute URL.

Dunno how other browsers treat such bugs, but I guess they just drop "../" if
there are no directories in the base url.

 It seems it would be easy to fix it.

 PS: I'm using the old lynx, so that may be fixed in current one.

 Best regards,
