The worst case would be a connection hanging around for 1/2 hour.  I've never
heard of a lost connection hanging around for "hours and hours", but if this is
truly the case, I would suspect a problem in the Dialup area, perhaps a 3rd
party relay or outboard that is "mimic"ing the client.  In such cases, these
outboards fool the Telnet Server into thinking a client is still connected, when
in reality the client is no longer connected to the Dialup.  However, the Dialup
still has a TCP/IP stack connection to the Server and is responding to Timemark
queries from the Server.
