I hope you have changed the default root password?

osso-xterm has a scrollbar at the right side of the screen, but there's
only so much output that fits in its scrollback buffer.

It means that the terminfo database that less uses to figure out how to
control the cursor is not installed.  It comes with the ncurses-base
package that you can install from the Application Manager, if you have
the maemo-hackers.org repository configured.

Did you install the plain osso-xterm (version 0.13) or the maemo-hacker.org
version (0.13.mh21bora1)?  I strongly suggest the m-h.org one, as it is
more featureful.
