I'm not sure which problem you're thinking about, but if you refer to the
timeout issue I think it affects all versions of windows since the telnet code
is a common chunk of code for all windows versions.

You can test this by running something like:

  curl -m 2 telnet://

which should result in:

  curl: (28) Time-out
