Perhaps an improper term{cap,lib} is forcing lynx to redraw the entire page
each time the spinner is updated.  I just did a script of a download of a
file that's of 58M.  The typescript file was 11K.  If I trim out all the
non-spinner stuff, it's 4K.

Perhaps if the Pat ran lynx under script, and obtained some numbers there,
we could attack the issue from that view point.

Because, if it IS a bad term{cap,lib} setting, I would expect a performance
issue with more than just lynx.
