Sorry Chris, the patch solves the binmode problem, but it doesn't solve
the telnetd problem. The effect has changed to the following behaviour:
telnetd starts login,
login prompts "login:"
after typing username and pressing a key corresponding
either to LF or CR, telnet is immediately disconnected.

`less' works as expected for me.

This seems to work fine. I have checked it with `cd' to mounted directories
and via symlinks between mounted filesystems and I haven't seen any problem :)
