[plt-scheme] continuation url & lynx?

Hi -

I am running into a baffling behavior and wonders if others have seen it

When I try to access the examples/add.ss from lynx (the text-mode browser) -
lynx has difficulty submitting the form.  As far as I can tell, the server
isn't being hit when I press the submit button.  The page, of course, works
fine in Firefox.

I can serve non-continuation-based pages without issues with lynx, so this
leads me to believe there is a possible issue using continuation-url and

Has anyone else seen something similar?  Below are my repro steps...

1 - start plt web server (mine is on port 8080)
2 - lynx http://localhost:8080/servlets/examples/add.ss
3 - type in a number and press enter

Lynx will hang for a while (message: HTTP Request sent; wait for response)
and then report a network error.
