It appears that the Wollongong user TELNET for VMS does not pad the CR
(carriage return) with either NUL (idle) or LF (line feed) entered from the
keyboard, so is in violation of the TELNET specification (RFC-854, page 10).
At least some servers become cranky when faced with "bare" CR, at least in
some cases. Fred Ball at Ford noticed the Wollongong struck with the fuzzball
TELNET server, but other servers may peal that gong as well.
