I'm not sure if ROM, Merc & others work fine under WIN95.

JMC (Jaba MUD Client), ZMUD 5.44, ZMUD 3.x, Win TELNET,
my own client (I have written simple MUD client from scratch).
The string is sent but it doesn't arrive at client side. If I append
asc10 & asc13 - everything works fine...
Its very strange.

Can anyone test Circle bpl17 in Win98? (not 95!)
