the escape sequence is not permanent as it's a per-client option.  as
soon as you disconnect and/or reconnect, you'll have the default ^Ec
sequence.  it sounds like you've got telnet in line mode instead of
character mode (well, it's a guess).  my telnet client has a 'mode
character' command to enable that.  hopefully that's the problem.

just to reiterate to everyone again - it's my opinion using telnet to
interact with conserver is a "last resort" method.  a simple script in
your favorite interpretive language that really deals with the basics of
the protocol would much better.  and, of course, using the console
client is the best.  i know folks have reasons for doing it, and that's
fine, but please be aware of the dangers.  no where does anything
mention compatibility with telnet (just some similarity).  but, like
many tcp-based protocols, it kinda works.
