If you mean that #elif defined(_WIN32) || defined (__CYGWIN__)
is unusual, then yes, it's the change which broke it. Reverting
it was suggested by the ELinks author when I faced it more than
a year ago. And you can see more reports on the mailing-list
archives, like reports that it only works under cmd.exe.

#elif defined(_WIN32) was in 0.96, which is the version
included in Cygwin.

It changed to #elif defined(_WIN32) || defined (__CYGWIN__) in
0.97, and has been broken since then.

Recompile 0.96 with the 0.97 change to os_dep.h. You get the
same brokeness.

Run the 0.98 and 0.83 binaries from
. You get the same brokeness with 0.98.

BTW, you wrote

"Seems to work ok for me.  Don't know about the accented
characters problem, though."

Does that mean you got it to work with rxvt and XTerm ? Without
the change it doesn't here, and doesn't seem with Harold.
