Similarly, sometimes the looking up of a server's address (via a
call to a domain name server, I believe) also can hang, leaving one
staring at an unchanging "Looking up www..."  message until the
search finally times out -- z won't interrupt this.

Is there any way to kill such a lookup-in-progress?  If not, could
one be added to Lynx?
