        Well I played around with this a bit today and found it only occurs
with a telnet client for the Mac, NCSA telnet.  Couldn't reproduce the problem
with unix telnet or another Mac client I tried.

        Apparantly what a few others mentioned seems to be true.  When you
first connect NCSA telnet sends out some undisplayable char in some sort
of handshake attempt.

        I'll look through the preferences later today, see what I find.
