I've got the same thing, but at 19200.  No joy.

Even with the toggling of tty settings, it seems this terminal should be
OK, but obviously isn't.  I see how it can be bad, but after all these
years you would thing things like this had been worked out.

The easiest solution might be a trip to the local DRMO to find another
terminal; a faster one.  That's where I got this vt320 years ago.
