I discovered the problem.  I have the following in my ~/.emacs:
(custom-set-faces '(mode-line ((t (:background "black" :foreground
"white" :box (:line-width 1 :color "white")))))).  If I remove the
:box (:line-width 1 :color "white") part, the pager works fine.

Is there something wrong with that line?
