<nod> Although it's not a bug in CircleMUD, then, it's an error in
the telnet program.  Had me worried for a while, since I did make
such a broad generalization ("No such bug has been reported or seen
by me," as if all bugs are reported to me or seen by me, otherwise
they don't exist :).

IF the handshake character is a '#' then it's simple enough to ignore
it.  After all, the character shouldn't (isn't?) allowed in names, and
if you have garbage characters at the beginning of the name, you can
be pretty sure that it's unintentional or you just have a stupid
person that doesn't know how to type. :)~

Hm, a spring that rebounds instead of staying squashed?  I'll make a
fortune off of it. :)
