lynx-dev Options: (D)ISPLAY variable bug

Start lynx without DISPLAY or -display set, then enter something from
the Options screen (old or new) for the "(D)ISPLAY variable" / "X Display"
setting.  Or start with $DISPLAY or -display set.  However it got there -
once set, there's no way to get rid of it completely.

The old-style Options screen gives at least a warning that something
went wrong:  "Failed to clear DISPLAY variable!".  The new one
seems to quietly ignore changes it doesn't like.

This seems to be a long-standing bug, back to at least 2.8.1.
Possibly since LY[gs]etXDisplay functions were introduced.
(A 2.7.1ac-0.91 I keep for reference acts as expected.)

Note I'm not talking about the
"Value accepted! -- WARNING: Lynx is NOT configured for XWINDOWS!"
message, which is part of acting as expected if lynx was started
without $DISPLAY or -display.
