Hmm, I should have added "for some values of N"... :)

Maybe you know when this appeared?

This sounds like lynx's understanding of current position on the screen
and curses' understanding of it getting out of synch.  Or possibly
lynx and curses agree, but the terminal (or emulator, e.g. xterm) doesn't. 
Could happen if "line wrapping" is set the wrong way (disagreement
between what curses thinks and terminal settings' reality), but normally
this shouldn't happen because lynx avoids writing to the last line
position (this is the reason only 79 positions are available in 80xNN
screen size).
