lynx-dev LYNX: need for "re-try to get it"

Often when I type in eg "12" (numbered links) to go somewhere,
it just waits -- or maybe comes back failing to find it,
eg that all ports are taken.

In either case, it speeds up things, it turns out, for me
to "z" it, and try again, which often works, right quick.

Now, if I am "at" that link, it's easy to re-try it; I
just hit <return> or L, and I'm off.

However, when I have typed in a number, eg 12, I have to
remember what number I typed in, and do it again.

Now, if I hit the up-arrow (not caret) key over to the
right of the keyboard, and do it after a "g", it
spits-out the last TYPED-IN (or on cmd line) address.

Maybe it would be nice if that "12", or at least the
addr it mapped to, was pushed onto that stack too?
Then IT would be there when I hit that up-arrow.


Or maybe there is already a key-cmd to re-try the prior thing,
and I just don't know about it?
