[Buildbot-devel] buildbot 8 doesn't work with lynx, but does work with links

Strange but true: buildbot doesn't support the lynx textmode browser,
and not because of javascript.

Navigating to the waterfall via the link in the body of the welcome page works,
but navigating to the waterfall via the link at the top fails.
Likewise, logging in fails.
In both cases, it seems to be objecting to the ./ in front of the URL.
Pressing = to see info about the error page shows e.g.
        Linkname: 404 - No Such Resource
        URL: http://localhost:8012/./waterfall

The other text-mode browser 'links' (curse them for naming it like
that) is not affected by this problem.
