i've been getting this recently, but i'm not sure where it's defined.
when i  Enter  a  .jpg  file, i get an image via Kview 1.9.2:
i can't find any definition of a viewer in  lynx.cfg ,
so it's probably a default by my KDE 3.0.3 (Mandrake Linux 9.0rc1).
Kview then tells me
  Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
& i have to enter  ^l  to restore the screen,
as other Lynx commands don't do it automatically.

we don't want it to be specific to  1  application (eg Xli),
so Lynx should simply trap any extraneous messages & refresh the screen,
perhaps with a choice in  lynx.cfg  to preserve them for debugging.
