It sounds like you've isolated the problem to within a couple of hundred 
lines of code. Maybe you should spend less time searching the web for 
someone with your exact problem, and more time reading that code.

Is this the same response text that MWSearch sees? If yes, where does 
MWSearch go wrong in interpreting it? If no, what is different about the 
way MWSearch requests pages compared to lynx? Is it timing out? You can 
use tcpdump to snoop on the communication between MWSearch and the search 
server. You can use telnet to generate requests manually and see how the 
search daemon responds.
