I am attempting to integrate Lynx with an application.  The system,
operating in win32, is built using CA Visual Objects.  VO has a RUN facility
which opens a dos command shell.  I also use a 3d party library, Funcky,
which provides a nicer equivalent.  

When attempting to perform a lynx -dump on the url: Lynx works perfectly at
the command line.  However when it is launched from the CA-VO application,
it fails, and according to its log, hangs at:

translation scheme.

What seems strange is that Lynx will resolve this address perfectly when it
is operated directly on the command line, but when spawned from CA-VO, it
