You know, I use lynx 2.8.7dev.4 right now. And I've found that, while I
can change the number of lines of my xterm and lynx works fine, if I try
to resize my xterm to be much wider (and performing an unset COLUMNS so
there isn't a variable saying the size is otherwise), I sometimes see
lynx's handling of certain aspects of the page to be unexpected.
Sometimes, I see a doubling of text that was highlighed in inverse, for

The page (text) and links (highlighted) are drawn separately.

When I modified it to work properly (?) with ncursesw,
I could have broken some detail in that area (since I did make
several fixes to repair things like that).  A copy of the
page, and the size, configuration information would help to
diagnose it.

The behavior isn't consistent, so I can't point you to an example. If I
get a chance to do a screen dump of the kind of thing to which I am
seeing, I'll post a pointer to it.
