FreeBSD telnetd and VersaTermPRO (Macintosh) do not negotiate a proper
connection. Sessions look like this:

^@dkelly 9% who
^@root     ttyv0   Apr 14 09:18
dkelly   ttyv1   Apr 14 09:37
root     ttyv2   Apr 14 09:51
dkelly   ttyv3   Apr 14 10:12
dkelly   ttyp0   Apr 14 09:31   (PowerMac)
dkelly 10% exit
^@dkelly 11% logout

I am guessing telnetd sees a null after a VersaTerm \r, shell expands it 
to ^@ and sends it back out via the telnet connection. I have tried 
"telnetd -l", "telnetd -k", "telnetd -lk", and just plain "telnetd"
without any noticable difference. These changes were effected by editing
/etc/inetd.conf and then "kill -hup" to the inetd process, then used
"ps -aux" to verify "telnet -whatever" was running when connected.

So what is happening?
