Tom will be able to give you the correct answer, but my GUESS would be
that you are overriding any information Lynx has about your terminal
by telling it you are on "vt100".  Maybe you have "vt100-w" already,
or you could write/compile a custom terminal description file with the
columns and lines you want.
