Why a bug report?

The 2.8.4dev.15 O)ption page says: "(options marked with (!) will not
be saved)."  Image handling on the O)ption page is marked with a "(!)."
It would be a bug if the setting was made permanently in .lynxrc.

At the time such options were put on the O)ption menu, I warned that we
would be getting this kind of complaint.  There is a toggle ('*'), you
know, which makes the entry on the O)ption page superfluous.

The place to make permanent preferences for this option is in lynx.cfg.
Please set the following to meet your needs: VERBOSE_IMAGES,
