They can't be confused -- a 910 looks like an ADM-3A (but squarer, not
as cute) and a 950 looks like a VT100, but narrower.

I don't _think_ the 910 supports pages of memory, but the 950 does. If
this is doing it without you pressing any keys, I'd suspect the termcap
or terminfo entries not being matched to the terminal, though that would
be odd as well, as the 950 doesn't emulate anything else. Both manuals
are online.
