[Lynx-dev] lynx does not check charset on reload

Hallo.

lynx-2.8.7 (rel. 2) does not check charset header for changes on reload.

It causes page corruption in following situation:

1. Enter URL.
2. Server has problems and returns an error message with a dumb charset
   (ASCII, ISO-8859-1).
3. Reload page.
4. Server returns correct page that has a different charset than the
   previous error message (e. g. UTF-8).

Current behavior: lynx displays reloaded page with the charset of the
                  original web page (error message).

Expected behavior: lynx displays reloaded page with the charset that the
                   page defines.
