Is there any way to place the Lynx.trace file in a directory other than in
the home directory?  Does it honor LYNX_SAVE_SPACE or any other
environment variables?  I didn't see any command line or lynx.cfg settings
for the location.  I was hoping it was the current directory, but no go.
I've exceded my quota a couple of times trying to do a trace, and wound up
having to do the old redirection thing (via -tlog) with sh do get a log in
