I have spent hours on it and am baffled, but I don't really understand
that tcplib code very well.  Still, I look at it from time to time.  Every
once in a while I get lucky and the answer magically appears.  So far that
has not been the case with the ftp and news.  I do know that lynx contacts
the server and then never sees the response.  Anyone with a better
networking background might get a clue from that.
