Does the following flag help in that situation?

    -enable_scrollback  toggles compatibility with comm programs' scrollback
                        keys (may be incompatible with some curses packages)

(but it would only be a workaround, and it sounds like what you really
need is a terminfo file describing the console better)

The -enable_scrollback doesn't seem to do anything for me but the
-enable_cursor at least shows me where the cursor is even though you
can't really tell until you move it, it is at least usable.

I'm using the default "sun" console type and VI works fine.

Is there some other terminal type I could use that would work better?

Maybe something to do with TERMINFO?
