At least a reference to specifics about the ways in which the 
crappy Windows telnet client sucks would be helpful, at least
for the archives.  This is the first I've heard of it, and I've
experienced only minor annoyances, never actual defects.  I'm
good at working around Windows suckiness, though, so maybe that's
why it never much bothered me.

Anyway, is there a good page that covers the "very very broken"
nature of Windows telnet?  (Uncharacteristically being too lazy
to google, but I've got a meeting in two minutes.)
