Hi.  :-)

Lynx 2.8.7dev.9 seems to have forgotten what to do with the
trailing `&' on external commands, and the `>' for redirecting
their output, at least where XLOADIMAGE_COMMAND is concerned.
Otherwise it's pretty much awesome, as usual.

Here's the relevant line from my lynx.cfg;

XLOADIMAGE_COMMAND:xli %s > /dev/null &

Redirected, by the way, so it won't spew this kind of noise
across Lynx's terminal;

address@hidden:~$ xli Screenshot.png
Screenshot.png is a 800x600 8 bit deep RGB PNG image
  Default gamma for ITRUE image is  1.00
  Building XImage...done
  Have adjusted image from 1.00 to display gamma of 2.20
Image Gamma now 2.200000
Screenshot.png is a 800x600 8 bit deep RGB PNG image
  Building XImage...done

I can't reproduce it.

It might be related to (e.g., buffer flushing, etc):

2001-04-01 (2.8.4dev.20)
* implement a simple workaround for staircased messages from running xli as an
  external viewer, with lynx_nl2crlf() function -TD

I haven't tried VIEWER, but this doesn't seem to affect other
external programs, like URL handlers and downloaders and such.
