It's probably because Lynx doesn't support persistent connections. The 
Miniserver doesn't actually close the connection. The HTTP client in the 
Library does not need the close of a connection to register a request as 
terminated - it uses the content-length, multipart mime transport coding, or 
chunked encoding.
