I've noticed this as well and chalked it up to goofy negotiations by the
app (for a more pronounced problem, try the PC Telnet 2.3.08).

If I understand it, the "4.3 CR mode" is needed to make certain apps,
like Kermit and Pine, take the "enter" key (on PC) or "return" key (on
Mac) as a literal CR. Otherwise it's a LF, which can be disastrous if ^J
means something different than ^M to your software.
Then again, maybe not. I enabled it on the Mac because I had some vague
recollection of that option solving my problem with Kermit 5A(190) on a
Mac long ago.
