I guess thats not a problem of telnet clients. Many people connect to a 
mud by calling a server through a modem line and using a terminal 
program (so they dont have a direct internet line). At least MS-DOS based 
computers (and the ATARI too?) needs a \n\r to display the CR/LF right.
I wrote a bbs some years ago and got many complainments from those users.
