here's what i can tell you.

regardless of what state your solaris box is in, conserver should always
send an IAC/BREAK character sequence over the telnet connection when the
"\z" break sequence is used (which is the default for ^Ecl1).  nothing
that i know of will cause that to change.  it's then up to the terminal
server telnet daemon to process that sequence and actually do the
hardware break on the serial port.

now, there might be something going on internal to conserver to cause it
to get confused, goof up the IAC/BREAK sequence or something else.
