I don't see a bug report in our issue tracker about this, so you could start by filing one. Our port only has minimal patches which I don't suspect would cause a crash. If the current development source available on the lynx web site works, but 2.8.8 does not, you might suggest to the developers that they release a new version 2.8.9; 2.8.8 is over 3.5 years old at this point so I wouldn't be surprised if the developers have fixed a number of things in the mean time.
