Oh yes, you might be right.  I said roughly the problem
arises around those lines ;)

I also guessed that the above change might fix the problem
but I was afraid that the above might concern with only lynx
compiled with ncurses.

Well, for non-programmer, it is generally rather difficult to 
judge if some inconvenience one encountered is bug or not.

Especially if it can be easily fixed with "pressing ^L"
as you pointed out or even with "scrolling up and down".

Furthermore, in this case (Moji-bake), it is very difficult 
to explain what inconvenience it is so, I guess, no one has
reported the problem to me.

And I myself did not know this mailing list untill recently ;)
