This made good sense to me, too.  I set it to 20 with the command line
parameter, and it still barfed after ten redirections:

"Redirection limit of 10 URL's reached."

This is a strange one.  Lynx is so configurable, I couldn't fathom this
being a static setting...

Thanks much for taking a stab at it.  Any other guesses?
