I think this is it.  /etc/nmh/mhn.defaults tells me that nmh is using
metamail, and /etc/mailcap is invoking Lynx like this:

text/html; /usr/bin/lynx -force_html '%s'; needsterminal; description=HTML 
Text; nametemplate=%s.html

Which seems like it ought to work, except maybe for the `nametemplate'
as I'm not sure what that does.  So I edited /etc/mailcap and added
`-trace' to the lynx options above.  Now when I reproduce the error, I
get a Lynx.trace file whose relevant lines appear to be these:

-> '/tmp//cjAgik/L12212-9513TMP.html'
... LYOpenTemp(/tmp//cjAgik/L12212-9513TMP.html) failed: Permission denied
Lynx: Can't open temporary file!
LYCleanupTemp removing /tmp//cjAgik

This sure looks like it's a different temporary file.  When I run
`lynx -trace a-normal-file.html', Lynx.trace instead contains
corresponding (I think) lines like these:

-> '/tmp//vgFD4E/L12368-8125TMP.html'
... LYOpenTemp(/tmp//vgFD4E/L12368-8125TMP.html)
...LYCloseTemp(/tmp//vgFD4E/L12368-8125TMP.html), closed

I must say I'm clueless about what's causing it to fail in the first
case but succeed in the second.  Any ideas?

Thanks for the suggestions.
