lynx-dev -anonymous broken in 2.8.4?

It seems to me that -anonymous is pretty messed up in 2.8.4 when compared to 2.8.3. For example, when -anonymous is used in 2.8.4 I can:

1) Go to a served file: URL which then can get me into DirEd which then gets me /etc/passwd

2) Use ! to spawn my shell (which isn't a big deal when the shell is a script that starts lynx)

3) I can save options to a .lynxrc file

4) I can save a file to disk (e.g. using the d key)

and perhaps some other things I missed. Perhaps this is the way it is supposed to work...
