I don't think these are links you particularly want to use for testing
of the "right-shifting link" problem.  These are utf-8 pages, which just
adds one more level of complication.  I had the same problem with these
university pages:              (charset=x-sjis)                (charset=Shift_JIS)
I also see it on my lab's page:  (charset=euc-jp)
(This last page has a neat effect, links 4-6 progressively shift
more, one kanji for 4, two kanji (actually full-size kana) for 5,
and three for link 6.)

I just now revisited the Okayama U. link, and noticed something I didn't
see before: the "underlying" link (part which is not highlighted in
reverse) is "shifting" to the left:
The "[" on the left side of what was "[3]" has disappeared "under"
the "ク".  Also you can see that the shift was three "half-size"
characters, namely "Goo".

Compiled with slang, the same link shows up as:

Probably; I don't specify it as a configure option.
 --with-nls-datadir=/usr/local/share --enable-nls
 --disable-included-msgs --without-included-gettext
 --with-screen=ncursesw --with-ssl --with-zlib
 --enable-nsl-fork --enable-gzip-help --enable-externs
 --enable-cgi-links --enable-internal-links
 --enable-japanese-utf8 --enable-nested-tables
 --disable-finger --disable-partial --disable-menu-options
 --disable-alt-bindings --disable-config-info

Other possibly related settings might be:
  Use mode                    : [Advanced]
  Keypad mode                 : [Links are numbered] 
  Color                       : [ON____]
  Show cursor                 : [OFF]
  Underline links (!)         : [OFF]

  HTML error recovery (!)     : [strict (SortaSGML mode)]
  Show images (!)             : [as links_]
  Verbose images              : [show filename]
