LYNX-DEV Lynx In Ethiopia:- FTP File Name Problem

       I am writing from Ethiopia where we provide web access through Lynx 
     to the community here.  We are now running Lynx 2.6 .  A nagging 
     problem I can not resolve with lynx configuration is to preserve the 
     original name of a file when ftp downloaded through a URL.
     That is if a URL with a name like :
     will first be stored in /tmp (linux 2.0) and then the user is prompted
     to download to the local terminal with X, Y, or Z modem.  But 
     downloading with Z modem the file transfered from /tmp will have a 
     name like "L19073.html" or something similar.
     Is there a way to avoid this, download to the home PC, and maintain 
     the original file name??
     Very grateful for any assistance.
       -Daniel Yacob
