escape sequences/telnet

I have some IBM x330's and the serial redirection of the BIOS is very sensitive.  The systems are connected to an Equinox terminal server.  In order for F1, arrow keys, etc to work, I have to use "|telnet" instead of being able to talk to the terminal server directly.  With ethereal, I found that telnet sends the  <ESC>[B all three characters go in one packet.  When conserver does it, the <ESC> goes in a packet and then the [B goes in another packet.  Is this by design?  Is there a way around it?  If I were to have to customize code, where might I look (console.c line ~1251)?  I am trying to avoid having over 150 telnet processes on a box that is pretty maxed out.
