Now, for my much-delayed follow-up.  

The problem is not so much the timing-out,
but these days more likely the line dropping
(panix is switching telecom providers).

Also, a mere list of urls visited is nothing
like the wonderful V-page, with the tree-of-visits

First, have you actually used the V-cmd, especially
to \-it into html, where you can then save it as
a html-file, and from then on can use that file
to resume that environment of prior-calls, hist-stacks,

The tree also gives you good documentation as to
how you got to the various urls you visited.

Give it try; see how you like doing that (restoring
yourself to some prior environment).


Of course, if I'm the only one who ever gets a 
dropped connection, then the auto-saving of a 
v-page's html wouldn't be so useful to the
lynx community as a whole.

Thanks for all the suggestions, though.
