For what it's worth, I've always had problems with the PC versions of NCSA 
Telnet, including both of those you mention here (I've used .05 and .07, 
as well).  I can usually (eventually) get a good session running by just 
opening new sessions without closing any of them.  I've always attributed 
this to some sort of timing related thing, or perhaps a bug in Telnet 
that's tickled by the NetBSD telnetd.

I haven't had to do this for at least 6 months now, thankfully.  I 
replaced my PC with a Mac. :-)  Now to scrounge up an old SPARC...


PS- on the Mac version, you can get into trouble if you set the "Allow 
linemode" option.
