Could you put those result up somewhere too, so I can look at them?

Also, does this depend on the length of the file?  You could try
  a) very small (size < 1536)
  b) 1536 << size < 4096
  c) size >> 4096
(based on some fixed buffer sizes in lynx that may be relevant)

I couldn't reproduce the initial problem, so I won't try to regenerate
this one.  If it's similar to the one with \x00, it would depend
on how the data arrives (how it's partitioned into network datagrams),
which is most different for you.  (I'm usually using a local proxy,
which probably ships the headers off in a separate first packet, that's
why I wouldn't have seen the \x00 problem.)
