I tried browsing the source for this and submiting a patch, but it
seemed a bit hard, thought I'd mention it to you first.

The problem is that the frist line in a gopher page gets concatenated
with the second. I was wondering how that might be fixed. To test this
open the link in my sig for example with lynx 2.8.5.

this sounds like

* pass a newline after the start of PRE-section in HTGopher.c to force the
  first newline between records to be seen and cause the lines to split
  (report by Ciprian Dorin Craciun) -TD

If you need more info just mail me, or if you have a patch to test.

Everything is simple, we're stupid.
