Yes I have been there, I just haven't figured out why doing that sets lynx
to copy the file in text mode rather than binary mode.  This cuts off the
file at the first eof(?) char when it should wait till the actual end.

VENDORDO.GZ  = 4890 bytes
L75480TM.TXZ =  714 bytes

Not quite the same size.  I can simulate that by doing:


Which also works in non-binary mode.  I just need to find the trigger
point in lynx to force using rb/wb to copy that file to temp space.
