Lynx could simply be using too much memory.  Try turning this option off:

  -curses_pads      uses curses pad feature to support left/right shifting (on)

If it's not so simple, my approach would be to see if

        a) just the size of lynx + subprogram is a factor anyway (by modifying
           lynx to immediately spawn a subprogram from different points in
           the initialization)

        b) add some logic to the subprogram to check if stdout is closed, if
           it is able to write some sort of trace-file to show its state.
