Hmm, the strace isn't very helpful, sorry. There's actually no hint what
happens. It's a function inside Cygwin which crashes but I guess you'll
have to debug that by yourself.
I tried the current lynx 2.8.4-5 in an ssh session, in rxvt and in a
console window, both, the fat-fingered as well as the correct link.
Then I rebuilt lynx for 64 bit mode (already uploaded to cygwin.com) and
tried all of the above again. No crash.
Then I rebuilt the latest Cygwin from CVS and tried again. Guess what?
