I have most often encountered this when my terminal window size was 
larger than exactly 80x24.

If you're using Xterm or Gnome-terminal or a Windows terminal, for 
example, make sure that the window is exactly 80 columns wide by 24 
lines tall, or the VT100 termcap inside the emulator will be very confused.
