question about links from Mikulas (Users)

Hi,
i've a contact with Mikulas , developper of links browser ..

see his letter

snip

Hi

I'll probably make a new release soon.

I still can't get it work stably with DJGPP - after prolonged usage (few
hours), it starts to overwrite the screen from the top (it almost looks
like heap collides with framebuffer) and after some more time, wattcp is
unable to make new connections, any connection hangs in "Making
connection" state.

There is probably something corrupting memory in DJGPP or Wattcp. Did
those problems happen to you too?

snip

I don't encounter this probḷem : somone user have this problem with links browser under dos?

i forwar this post to Mik.

I look forward to that. :)

I use several versions of Links in DOS (MS-DOS 6.20) and Linux (Slackware 4, 7, 9, 14.1-current).
Links is my second favourite DOS browser (after Arachne) and IS my favourite browser for Linux.
I have never seen any of them overwrite the screen.
