If telnetd -k fixes it, then you have no choice. However, the way I fix
it without gunking up reasonable telnet clients is by running telnetd -k
on port 22 (which is otherwise unused) and just remembering to type "telnet
jfwhome.funhouse.com 22" on the Suns at work (very easy to remember if you
use an alias :-).
