I can't reproduce the problem either, with a dev.17(+own changes).
But, using tcpdump, I can see the listing response arriving in two
packets.  The first 512 bytes contain the first 4 .tgz entries
fully.  What you observe is consistent with the second packet being
lost for some reason.

Maybe the specific server is closing the data connection prematurely
for some reason.  There have been changes in HTFTP.c that might trigger
this (although the server would be violationg the FTP protocol if
that's the case).  Maybe it doesn't happen for me (and others) with
this server because you are closer to it (in terms of round-trip time).

Does the same happen with Lynx before 2.8.3dev.10 or so?

Does the same happen with other servers?
... with other server types? 
(The server type should appear on the '=' INFO screen, in this case
     Server: egg FTP server (Version: 7.1.0)

Maybe...  everything after
   Making FTP connection to ...
might be relevant.
