Thanks for the tip on "less". As it turns out, we are picking up less 
from an nfs mouted directory from our ITS department. The utilities and 
programs in that area were compiled with AIX 3.2.5 and exported to 
campus. Although I have found that most of the utilities are binary 
compatible with AIX 4, this is one that is not (at least not the way it 
was compiled). Since the "more" program that comes with AIX 4 is pretty 
good (allows paging back etc.), I have temporarily put in a link to it 
(called less) on the system ahead of the nfs mounted less in the search 
path. That has fixed the problem listed below until such time as I have 
the chance to compile less locally.

I'm sure I would never have found this on my own. Thanks again.
