The issue is that telnet is a line-oriented protocol.  There is exactly
one way to solve that "problem": negotiate the client into "char-by-char"
mode.  That is, there are exactly zero good ways to solve this "problem"
for your uses.  If you bothered to properly negotiate into "char-by-char"
mode, then you may as well negotiate on TERMTYPE and forget the \x1B[6n

This has been discussed several times before.  For more information, check
the archives or the relevant TELNET RFCs.
