I'm having problems when I use tn5250 to telnet into my AS/400, then use
the AS/400's "TELNET" command to telnet back into another FreeBSD box.

(Why would I do that, you ask?  Because I have a program that works
similarly to an "expect" script on the AS/400.  Its attached to an AS/400
menu option, which an ordinary user will eventually run.  At the moment,
however, I'm testing it -- and I'm using tn5250)

Anyway, whenever I telnet (using tn5250) from the AS/400 to my FreeBSD
box, tn5250 receives what it believes to be an invalid character, and
causes a CPF message to say "unprintable data was sent to display... blah
blah blah"

However, I don't have this problem from real IBM 3179 or from RUMBA. 

I'll send a tracefile upon request :)
