I see the problem with this now - lynx does a GET for HTTP 1.0, and
that server responds with an HTTP 1.1, and proceeds to send that using
chunked gzip's.  (A few years ago we had a bug report which was like
that - seems that the problem was the server, which didn't want to
talk HTTP 1.0).

I'll look into making lynx recognize the chunks...
