I've been told by a Macintosh user that once played AR that some
client/telnet ? on Macintosh likes to send a # before the first line sent
to the MUD. In the CON_GET_NAME state in nanny() i now skip the first
character if it is a '#' - it may help you. Assuming the nanny() setup is
in Circle like it is in Envy :)
