Your English is fine! Thanks for the reproduction recipe. I didn't know lynx had file management capabilities built in.

I can reproduce this problem. I have determined that it was fixed between 2.8.9dev.2 and 2.8.9dev.3. I can't find a public repository of lynx source code so I will try to create a patch that we can use in MacPorts.
