Line-oriented timestamps in conserver 7.0.2

I just upgraded from 6.15 to 7.0.2 and was looking forward to
line-oriented timestamps in the logs. I set the logging to "1l" (one-el)
to get the timestamp on every line of console output. However, I see
some peculiar behavior with this setting. Here is a sample session with
no line-oriented timestamps from the log where I login, cat the
/etc/group file, and logout:

nova01[/home/cheek] cat /etc/group^M
nova01[/home/cheek] exit^M
nova01 console login:

Here is a session where I do the same steps as above after enabling
line-oriented timestamps (1 per line) and stop/restart conserver:

[Mon Jul  2 16:24:44 2001]nova01 console login: 

The curious thing is my typing in the logfile. When I have 1 timestamp
per line, my command "cat /etc/group" looks like "c1a1t1
1/1e1t1c1/1g1r1o1u1p1" and my "exit" looks like "esxsists".

Anyone have any ideas?

Here is my conserver configuration:

$ conserver -V
conserver (15939): conserver.com version 7.0.2
conserver (15939): default access type `r'
conserver (15939): default escape sequence `^Ec'
conserver (15939): configuration in `/usr/local/etc/conserver.cf'
conserver (15939): password in `/usr/local/etc/conserver.passwd'
conserver (15939): pidfile in `/var/run/conserver.pid'
conserver (15939): limited to 32 groups with 16 members
conserver (15939): high-bit of data stripped (7-bit clean)
conserver (15939): on port 782

Note that I originally compiled conserver with 8bit on and saw the exact
same behavior. (I tried recompiling with 8bit off hoping this was the
problem. :-)
