Unfortunately, this is not the problem. The result from stty -a:
speed 9600 baud; rows 30; columns 130; line = 0; intr = ^C; quit = ^\;
erase = ^H; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>; eol2 = <undef>; start
= ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase = <undef>; lnext =
<undef>; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0; -parenb -parodd cs8 -hupcl

Number of rows & columns correspond exactly to the size of the
terminal window.

Sounds likely, but I found a list of hundreds of possible TERM
settings - too much to guess. On both my Linux box and on the HP-UX
machine, TERM is set to 'xterm'. I've tried a few likely candidates
(TERM=linux, hpterm and a few others) but no luck.

Any other suggestions?
