lynx: Start file could not be found or is not text/html or text/plain

However, the file doesn't exist one lynx has terminated. If it were still
around, I could take a look to see what is wrong.

Is there anything I can do to catch the file before lynx deletes it?

Only by modifying lynx, e.g., to just do an exit(1) on this case.

The trace file would show the header information that tells lynx it
should use gzip.  (For some cases, using zlib and memory-caching will
not require it to use an external gzip, though the end result may be the same).

I'll take a look to see if it breaks for me also (this evening).
