More information would probably be in order

void init_detansi(struct descriptor_data *d) {
  write_to_output(d, "\r\nDetecting ANSI compliance... \x1b[6n");
This function works, and does return a good code (in telnet, not tintin,
which is probably a tintin problem anyway).  Which is read into:

void detansi(struct descriptor_data *d, char *input) {
  /* Received a square bracket, that's probably the ANSI code being
   * returned. Call it a detection :)
  if (strchr(input, '['))
    end_ansi(d, TRUE);
  d->has_prompt = 0;
only if enter is pressed by the user.

game_loop calls:
      if (STATE(d) == CON_DETANSI)
        detansi(d, comm);

and new_descriptor calls init_detansi

It appears that all would be solved if the \x1b[6n response could be
automatically inserted into char comm; we would be set.  I don't know if
the move from SEND_TO_Q had anything to do with this or not.

Thanks for any help that can be offered.
