hmm - dev.14 won't run the lynxprog url anyway (due to the blank-conversion).
But with that fixed, I don't see a problem with my current setup:

        Debian 2.2
        ncurses 5.0 or
        ncurses 5.3.20030412
        screen 3.09.11

I have a newer Debian, but it's only up to around September, and I have
some issues to resolve before updating that.  It might be a problem with
screen - that would be simplest for me to check on.
