| I've seen similar problems on my console: I've got an A3000/30, 16/2MB,

I believe you'll find this one will go away, if you change TERM to "vt100"
from "vt220" or whatever it ordinarily is. (And TERMCAP, if you're letting
tset -s set one up.)
I'd be surprised if this is the same problem that Mr. Vrolijk reports, with
the Retina that can't scroll with a 68040.
