Not only lynx have this buffer overflow in a send e-mail MAILTO. It has
segmentation fault in the options menu when u enter:

A big E)ditor name, D)ISPLAY variable, B)ookmark file , P)ersonal mail
address  . I know this can not be exploited remotly but can be use to
execute arbitrary commands in a menu restricted enviroment. There are
easier ways to get a shell on a menu but this is just one way of many, and
it isnt a shell escape option its just  another stupid bug.
