I get the following output with
lynx -mime_header http://www.perl.com/CPAN/
HTTP/1.1 302 Found

That is, a redirection to an ftp URL. This redirection message has
several unusual properties:
- the double slash at the end of the Location header
- It pretends to have a text/html body, but there isn't any body
- Requesting URL http://www.perl.com/CPAN instead (without trailing
slash) gives quite different results.
- It is a HTTP/1.1 response
Any of these could be confusing your proxy, or even Lynx...

I have no idea why -trace would make Lynx fail, apparently somewhere in
the cookie code.

Try it without a proxy...
