no - I was talking about the typescript file.  You were moving the cursor
from right to left, and you say the characters appear one at a time.  The
typescript shows one line emitted correctly, and then overwritten by another
line that's garbled.  There's no intermediate states.  (If you were running
in 'screen' or something else that could filter things, that might produce
this effect, but then we're back to finding out if the bug is in lynx or
in screen/terminfo).
