[Lynx-dev] Freezing bug

I am using Debian Jessie set up for command-line only, with screen and 
with the brltty screenreader.

I have encountered strange freezes while using lynx. The most extreme is 
in trying to search on Google. While arrowing from one link to another 
the machine becomes totally unresponsive. It can't even be turned off 
with the power button. I have to pull the plug before I can reboot.

When filling out the book request form at the 
freezes after filling out the first few items. However, the machine does 
not freeze. When I type killall lynx from another screen instance the 
program stops and the prompt reappears.

I had no trouble filling out the form to subscribe to this list.

I've been told on the address@hidden list that the problem seems to 
occur on some machines but not on others. it seems to be unrelated to 
Debian Jessie. It did not occur when I was using CentOS some years ago.
