Exactly what versions of Lynx and brltty are you using?  I've never had this 
happen with Lynx, but I don't use Braille.  I just upgraded to the latest 
lynx-cur from testing and tried Google, but nothing unusual happened.  Also, 
as I understand it, user processes can't lock up the machine.  They can 
freeze a console, but shouldn't lock up everything.  Perhaps it's some other 
issue which is being triggered by Lynx, but not Lynx itself.
