If the problem is temporary (eBay) using the same client,
then that sounds like the server.  It's possible that an
upgrade changed the real compression to/from deflate, which
you may/may not have (there was some instance of that a few
years ago).  You can configure lynx to say it won't accept
compressed pages to help narrow it down (the "Preferred Encoding"
selection in the options menu).
