I have this problem too actually with my bank's web services...

It says it's probably a server misconfiguration---so I let it go at that.
I'm now re-evaluating this.  What are the odds that two distinct servers
allow netscape through but won't allow lynx-ssl due to server
misconfiguration?  Sounds to me like lynx or openssl is broken.
