FWIW, we got it.

fixed it now

Tom, you might want to change the default???

It is the default in the Debian version enabled in 2.8.6-5
at Mon, 18 Oct 2004. AFAIK grml uses the Debian package.

$ ./configure --help | grep sysl
 --enable-syslog         log URL requests via syslog

I switched it off in $HOME/.lynx/lynx.cfg via

Debian's package (lynx-cur) turns it off:


# Log the requested URLs using the syslog interface.

Looks like I didn't update the comment in lynx.cfg, but in the source code:

src/LYGlobalDefs.h:251:    extern BOOLEAN syslog_requested_urls;
src/LYMain.c:102:BOOLEAN syslog_requested_urls = FALSE;
