The normal expected behaviour for SIGINT on an interactive program is
to return to the basic command mode without losing state.  SIGINT on
Lynx is very easy to hit by accident and throws away all state.  The
function with the default binding of ^G is closer to what one would normally
expect from SIGINT.
