Nope, that's the sound of telnet being broke big time. Logging in at the
console works but telneting in (even telneting to myself) results in very
garbled output. Some of the symptoms:

Lost initial characters
no echoing of commands as typed
results of commands only show last few characters
staircase effect during results of commands

This is exibited from a clean install from a new copy of the tar.gz file. Just
to test I backed up to 1.99.12 on the local machine and then telneted to the
one in the other room that was still running 1.99.13. Same results. So it
is in the incomming code, not the outgoing code. So back to 1.99.12 for me.
