You might be able to use the EXTERN_LINK command (by default, I
think this is bound to the period) to launch something like "wget" on
the URL which might preserve the entire filename.  By default, my
/etc/lynx.cfg has entries that include launching wget to pull down
files.  I haven't tested it on anything with a space in the name, but
from what I see in the file, I'm not sure whether the "%s" needs to
be wrapped in double-quotes to prevent the shell from treating the
space-separated bits as separate parameters.
