that would be roughly the same case - lynx should only run a subprocess
by first stopping curses mode, execute the process and then restore
curses mode (repainting the display).  If the subprocess were detached
(for instance to display an image with xli), that could send messages
to the screen after lynx had repainted it.  But neither less or vim
should be doing that.

That reminds me - recent 'screen' is supposed to be aware of xterm's
alternate screen feature (that's something that could be a bug in screen,
but not lynx).  So I'll check both.
