Could you clarify what you mean here? There is no "BACK" key in lynx.
Are you talking about one of the keys bound to "LYK_PREV_DOC", or
something else? I don't think that lynx will quit if you do LYK_PREV_DOC
and the document doesn't exist unless you get some type of fatal memory
problem. What you are describing here is very different from the
expected failure on starting lynx with no valid address. I haven't seen
this in my own use of lynx. Can you give a reproducible example where
this happens? Have you seen this on only one platform or is this problem
platform independent?
