The call to the url starts some processing which takes more than 5 hours.

Most browsers would give up after just a few minutes!

I believe there is an HTTP response (Status 100???) which allows one to say "please wait". If that's right and Lynx supports it, a better approach would be to have the application periodically send that response.
