I don't suppose you have an opportunity to snoop the network streams
for two sample sessions with the two telnetds? That's what I'd try to
do to figure this one out.

Just a thought: I wonder if it's the client thinking it's supposed to
be generating CRLF line endings, and the server thinking it's not, and
the CRLF thus being interpreted as a "double carriage return" (since CR
and LF often end up each getting mapped to NL). I'm not sure how to
test that, short of traffic snooping.

That depends on what the underlying problem is. :-)
