It's possible that it's an error in WinSock, but I doubt it.  You might
want to search if Microsoft has anything about supporting the TELNET
protocol in its API.  More likely, Zuggsoft either used example Microsoft
code or misread the same RFC as Microsoft.  IOW, I don't think there's a
library of functions specifically for TELNET option parsing -- if it is
broken Microsoft code, it's probably something someone sent along to the
Knowledge Base or similar that ended up in a bunch of programs that no-one
double checked for compliance.

Nope.  Then we'll all be busy doing portscans on your machine.
