I'm afraid I don't have a linux environment to play with. If you've
looked at telnet.c, you will see how the telnet_do() function is
partitioned into separate code streams for Winsock/Win32 and everything
else. I won't speculate on whether the issue is the same as it is for
Winsock/Win32, maybe you can check it out with a debugger, or someone
else on the list knows what's going on.

I tried coming up with a non-blocking version for Winsock/Win32, but
it's not working yet, and it will still be stupidly simple (as far as
console-based telnet clients go); nevertheless, it would be an
improvement.
