  I meant: suppose that lynx is running in `xterm -u8'; select any
  Russian word shown in the "Russian" google search page.

More details: the search field shows junk; but if I press Tab to go to
the "Search" button (labeled in Russian, of course ;-), the search
field becomes correct.  Now pressing the Search button activates a
correct search.

But now select the search term repeated on the *new* page (same word
as before!); press Left to go back to the main search page.  Try
pasting this word into the search field again.  I get #####.

I'm completely puzzled...
