I tried using 'd' but Lynx _still_ thought the .tgz file was a text file.
I'll try forcing the download from the history page and see if it works,
but, since 'd' didn't do the trick, I doubt if reloading from the history
page will, either. 

I'm curious if others have had the same problems downloading .tgz files.

Thanks for your input.
