Thanks for the suggestion. I tried this. The reply comes immediately.. no
hang of any kind.
BTW, the rlogin hang time is either 4..5 seconds or 9..11 seconds, depending
on my luck. I didn't see any delays of 5...9 seconds when starting several
rlogins. Maybe the delay is one or two timeouts of some kind?
