switching consoles really just causes the client to disconnect from the
current console and connect to a new one.  so, it's just like shutting
down telnet and starting up a new one.  and it's just one example of how
the client/server protocol doesn't "work" with telnet (another is
'^Ec|'...you'd really get in a weird state with that one).
