I believe that it's Zmud (and other clients, I think another is
rapscalion or some mac client) that don't do the correct thing with the
telnet codes (actually they don't actually do very much of the telnet
protocol from what I've heard from other places) sent to turn echo on
and off.  I never noticed till someone pointed out to me that zmud
messes up.  I use tf which works fine.  It was something added in bpl
16, as George said just reverse the patch on echo_on.
