Broken virtual console

After a telnet session to my ISP in which I had to set TERM=vt100 to get 
pine to work (linux termtype unrecognized) I returned from the session 
only to find that the console was broken. When the cursor reaches the 
bottom of the screen no scrolling occurs, so successive lines appear on 
top of each other. When I try to use pine the controled lines cause 
scrolling when it is not desired. 
I have tried resetting the term type to linux, logging out, killing bash 
from root, and none have had any effect. 
Short of rebooting the system (something I will be doing in a while 
anyway) is there any way to recover from this behavior. I had problems in 
ancient times with minicom on these same screen control issues and never 
resolved it there.
