1) NULL dereferencing crash with unexpected data from Gopher server

I have attached a fake Gopher server,, that
illustrates this issue. Run it, connect to it with lynx (lynx
gopher://fake.server), select the Search menu item, press s, search
for something.. notice how lynx crashes.

It also crashes if you go directly to a URL like
"gopher://fake.server/2a?b";, for example by selecting a link in an
HTML document.

thanks (I guess the gopher code has been neglected since there aren't many gopher servers).
