Laura Eaves also had trouble downloading some of the old lynx source
archives from my ftp site using lynx, with one coming through OK and 2
corrupted. This didn't seem to be a problem when I set the files up for
http rather than ftp download.
Is there a problem with the ftp handling in the lynx code? Were any
