[elinks-users] elinks reloads a page when following an internal link

I am having a problem with one of elinks behaviors.
I often visit a site where a cgi script creates a page
containing several internal links.
When I attempt to follow one of these internal links, elinks
will attempt to reload the page, lose the session data and
kick me back to a login page.
Elinks also warns about missing fragment "#name" where #name
is the internal linking reference.
I have not been able to identify any caching or browsing
configuration setting which fixes this problem.
I am running elinks 0.12pre5 on
a Debian 5.0.7 system.
Incidentally, lynx 2.8.7 and a variety of GUI browsers have
no trouble navigating the internal links.
Also, when I save the HTML into a local file, elinks has no
trouble navigating the internal links from a static page.
So at this point It looks like my woes are the result of an
unnecessary page reload.
If anyone can suggest a solution to this problem I'd be happy to hear it.
To me, this feels like a bug, elinks shouldn't reload a page when the
anchor tag points to another part of the same page.
I now await the wisdom of the list.
