From Thomas Thurman: | When the telnet option NAWS is enabled, and the width or height of the | screen is exactly 255 characters, PuTTY fails to double up the 0xFF | byte in the subnegotiation, as required by RFC1073. (in telnet.c:telnet_size()) | Linux telnet servers don't seem to be fazed by this, but it crashed a | Python telnet server I was testing it on. SGT, 2003-01-02: Should now be fixed. And I disagree that Linux telnet servers aren't fazed by it - the Debian 3.0 machine on my desk certainly doesn't like it much!
