Have you activated -show_cursor to give your telnet program something to
work with?  Have you tried the Home key to get to the top of the page?
Lynx needs to know the screen size, and it sounds as if there's a major
mismatch.  Do you have scroll-back enabled?  This could be sending the
whole page to the telnet client for local recall.  Just a few things to
check on.
