I was wondering if anyone had ever noticed this problem.

I use a wiki a lot.  I have noticed that if I go to edit one of
the wiki pages , and the page contains lines longer than 1024,
lynx asks me if I want to wrap the lines.  However, even if
I say "no, I don't" lynx goes ahead and breaks those lines into 1024
or less character lines.

That's because lynx only stores 1024-character lines in the display.
It's a compiled-in parameter (MAX_LINE), and can be changed.  One
of the drawbacks to changing it is that many display items are allocated
with this size (not with the actual size required).
