	When I use the Telnet encrytion feature, after some time the
	characters arriving on the remote end are totally bogus. This
	*may* be caused by a application-level Telnet gateway in the
	firewall system between the company network and my home
	machine, but I *think* this gateway is transparent (because
	the encryption works at all).
	Use Telnet between FreeBSD boxes for some time (sorry to be so
	vague, but I don't have two machines to do thorough testing).
