[Lynx-dev] Lynx insists on filename in file/attachment field when using

I'm using Lynx 2.8.4rel.1 to access gmail. It works great, but if I
try to send an email without an attachment, it tells me:

Alert!: Can't open file for uploading

and won't let me post the mail. Attaching /dev/null works, but is kludgy.

In other words, it forces me to attach a file even if I don't want
to. I'm guessing this happens on all forms with 'file' input types,
but haven't tested.

Would upgrading help?

Ironically, Lynx warns me "[FILE Input] (Not yet implemented.)", even
though I *can* attach a file (the file gets MIME-encoded, even if it's
plain text).

Just for fun, I've attached a one-line text file to this message
instead of attaching /dev/null.

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
