Thank you for reply. The problem is that i use lynx into some script.
Sometimes lynx waits indefinitely (for example, due to network problems or remote server), and so the script does not go forward. So I need a time-out (like curl or wget timeout) that "unlock" lynx to allow the script to continue ...
What can I do?
Thank you again..

that sounds recent enough... but
I made some fixes in dev.13 for nsl-fork, but that's probably not what
you're looking at.

It depends on what you are looking for: lynx is calling "select" with
a timeout of 0.1 seconds, and checking the result 10 times a second,
limited by the option value.
I see from the list-archives that someone asked about this feature early 2013,
but there's no definite issue reported so far...
