i was curious, so i took a quick peek at the cs9000 docs that are
online.  i couldn't find anything except for the 'set telnet' command.
there's a 'mapnl' option that looks interesting.  a 'show telnet line
1' should show if it's on for line 1.  i'd bet it shouldn't be.  the
'mode' option probably should be off as well.  i'm thinking that either
the CR is being mapped to NL or a NL is being inserted or some other
such manipulation is being done and therefore the sun isn't seeing the
right sequence.  at least, that's my theory - based on no real idea of
what those options are supposed to do since they aren't documented

i agree, but it's at least a fallback position.

yeah, i'm looking into it no matter what.  just not sure how to deal
with the code yet.
