clearly it is an hp bug if you send it a command it stops functioning.
perhaps there is a more recent revision of the code.  hp does have a

are other vendors.

my guess here would be that the pager continues to be used and is badly
confused by a terminal length of zero, rather than just acting like cat(1).
