Package: lynx
Version: 2.8.3rel1
Severity: wishlist

Hello,

Lynx does not display error messages from a failed log on
to an ftp server. This occurs when there are too many users at once,
( ftp://ftp.redhat.com/ is usually full )
or the anonymous password was not an email 
(for example ftp://ftp.pppl.gov/ )

The message should be displayed to inform the user.
It would be good to see the messages in any case because they 
tell about mirrors or have other info like in ftp://ftp.gnu.org/

Thanks.
