lynx-dev Leaking file-handles

I've noticed that Lynx 2-8-5 dev.14 is leaking file-handles under
Win-XP and 4NT shell (but *not* under CMD).

Compiled with MingW + PDcurses 2.6

While Lynx is running: "handle | grep lynx":
     d4: File          G:\MingW32\src\inet\lynx2-8-5
  lynx.exe pid: 2368 PCGV\Gisle Vanem

And after Lynx has terminated:
   d4: File          G:\MingW32\src\inet\lynx2-8-5

handle is a nice tool from

Running Lynx several times, leaves more file-handles open.
Any explanation for this? Or how to debug this behaviour?
This happens no matter what URL I use (local or net). Even
"lynx -h" leaks one handle. I have to exit the 4NT shell to free
the handles.

I've tried compiling with LY_FIND_LEAKS, but didn't notice
any significant leaks (files or memory). Only one in HTDOS.c
at line 19.
