Try this.

1. Login as you describe.

2. type 
lynx -show_cursor

3. does the problem you describe still exist?  If not, then you can
set the site's lynx.cfg file up to turn on that option by default.

If the problem still exists, there is likely some other problem.  The
reason I keep 'harping' about the terminfo is that I see some weird
behavior when using lynx (ncurses) and TERM set to sun.  For some
reason, lynx writes over any text previously on the screen, leaving the
original text in places where no lines were output.  It's not a big
deal for me since the only time I would operate like this is when
I was checking something out for someone on the mailing list <grin>.
