What's that nonexisting directory called?

Normally Lynx puts files that are 'd'ownloaded by default into whatever
directory was the current one when Lynx was started.  You can also
specify a different directory at the 'd'ownload command's "Enter a
filename:" prompt.  But just doing a `cd' command to your local directory
should put 'd'ownloaded files, by default, in that directory.

This won't work if you call Lynx by way of a script file, which in turn
is calling the Lynx binary after cd'ing to some other directory.
So check whether what you call when you type `lynx' (or whatever) is 
a shell script which is doing such a thing.
