IMHO it's TCP, nothing to do with "telnet" itself,

Perhaps you can use a sysctl command to extend the tcp timeout value. (I 
just looked but i could not find one that should do the job.)
but that might also tell one that tcp values are default, a timeout 
always occurs in x seconds (where x is staticly defined).
