Sounds like bad terminal emulation. I find that NCSA (and the related
Clarkson CUTCP) telnet have pretty poor terminal emulation. I run CUTCP
under DOS here occasionally, to a Debian 2 box. I haven't noticed
what you said but I use vi.
I can't suggest a better DOS telnet though. I'm used to the Lan Workplace
(Novell) one too but it's nothing to write home about. On Windows I use
CRT and find it to be most excellent.
