I get the following output with 

     lynx -mime_header

HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Date: Wed, 12 Mar 1997 06:25:39 GMT
Server: Apache/1.2b6
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html

That is, a redirection to an ftp URL.  This redirection message has
several unusual properties:
 - the double slash at the end of the Location header
 - It pretends to have a text/html body, but there isn't any body
 - Requesting URL instead (without trailing
   slash) gives quite different results.
 - It is a HTTP/1.1 response

Any of these could be confusing your proxy, or even Lynx...

I have no idea why -trace would make Lynx fail, apparently somewhere in
the cookie code.

Try it without a proxy...
