Thanks to everyone who responded with info on the telnet options. It
turns out that it was a combination of problems on both ends of the
connection:
1) The tops-20 host was coming up with unknown options for it's own
purposes (apparently a common problem with them).
2) The Xerox host was doing a table lookup on the options, and when it
didn't find the option in it's table, it died. What it should have
done was respond with a DONT or a WONT... It should be an easy fix to
incorporate into the code.

Ah well, these are the joys of networking on heterogenous machines, I
guess.
