I've just reproduced the download problem on FreeBSD with 2.8.2.  It seems
that Lynx junks the stream after the first high-bit-set character.

As you can see if you hex dump them, the mime_header one is basically junk 
after the 0xC2 in the seventh byte.  I originally thought this was down to
the "text/plain" setting in HTTP.c, line 1711 or so.  Changing that to
"application/octet-stream" didn't make any difference, unfortunately.

Other than that, the only possible explanation I have is that maybe the 
code assumes the data is 7bit clean?
