Don't know if this is related, but while people are pointing out the flaws
in Microsoft's telnet effort, I might as well join in. I found that ytalk
didn't like telnet and couldn't really cope with multiple users (which
made it a bit pointless). Then someone suggested to use the VT100 terminal
setting as opposed to the vt100 terminal setting (there's a subtle
difference there), which solved the problem instantaneously.
