        I ran into this problem with ZMud while writing a MUD/Talker in Visual
Basic.  What I found out was that ZMud was sending the text of the user's
input in one packet, then sending a CR/LF pair in a following packet.  What
I did in my code was to check the last two bytes of the user's input, and if
it wasn't a CR/LF pair, place the whole thing in a hold buffer until the
CR/LF was recieved, then process the input.

For what it's worth.
