I suppose you could log the input on the sex prompt and see what the bad
client returns.  Then put up a test for that value.  If you do find a
common value, send it to me and I'll include it in the base.  For now we
have a BROKEN_BUT_COMPATIBLE #ifdef in comm.c.

It's fixable. Shouldn't be hard.  They probably use 'if' instead of 'while'
or something similiar.

Rapscallion should be told as well. Microsoft's version should be called
TCP tunnel, not telnet...
