The problem is from the SSL patch which I applied in 2001 (it just happens
that the result from reading the news article contains a rubout 255
code, which is being sign-extended to a -1, which lynx then sees as an
EOF - end of file).

Here's a fix:

--- WWW/Library/Implementation/HTNews.c 2009/01/01 17:00:01     1.58

It worked fine!


I have a handful of other fixes to investigate for pre.3 (have been
busy on other projects...), and will have this in pre.3

Applied it to a build from Debian source packages.
I was ignorant/confused about the format you posted,
I thought it was a for patch, didn't seem to find the combination
of switches that worked, so I just put it in by hand!  :-)
Think this is the first time I've built Lynx from source.
