Comment 1 Ed Greshko 2013-01-29 19:30:37 EST
I find 2 manifestations of the problem.... One looks as you describe.... [egreshko@meimei ~]$ telnet localhost Trying ::1... Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'. Fedora release 18 (Spherical Cow) Kernel 3.7.4-204.fc18.x86_64 on an x86_64 (4) eimei login: assword: ast login: Wed Jan 30 08:23:52 from localhost The other... [egreshko@meimei ~]$ telnet f18x Trying 192.168.0.168... Connected to f18x. Escape character is '^]'. Fedora release 18 (Spherical Cow) Kernel 3.7.4-204.fc18.x86_64 on an x86_64 (3) Connection closed by foreign host. In both cases if I add server_args = -D options to the telnet file in /etc/xinetd.d the problem is "fixed".
Comment 2 Ed Greshko 2013-01-30 01:58:12 EST
FYI, I also reverted to the F17 telnet-server package. This did not fix the problem. Testing was done with the firewall disabled as well.

https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/1/15/641 davej points this out... looks like it's a /sbin/login bug. fun.
Comment 5 Ed Greshko 2013-01-30 20:20:29 EST
FWIW, I replaced login with the one from F17 and this "fixed" the problem.

(In reply to comment #5) > FWIW, I replaced login with the one from F17 and this "fixed" the problem. Thanks for testing, reassigning to util-linux for further inspection.
Comment 7 Kyle McMartin 2013-01-31 12:15:13 EST
https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/1/15/641 probably should be assigned to the kernel... makes my head hurt thinking about tty though.

Comment 9 Attila 2013-02-05 08:22:47 EST
I can confirm and reproduce this bug. The version of my installed telnet-server package is: telnet-server-0.17-54.fc18.i686
Comment 10 Karel Zak 2013-02-20 12:33:45 EST
The patch is in TTY tree and probably will be merged into kernel 3.9-rc.
Comment 11 Josh Boyer 2013-02-20 14:13:22 EST
Hopefully it will make it into the stable releases. In the meantime, we can bring it back after a bit of time in Linus' tree.
Comment 12 Josh Boyer 2013-03-04 09:17:33 EST
This is fixed with commit b81273a132177edd806476b953f6afeb17b786d5 Author: Jiri Slaby <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Tue Jan 15 23:26:22 2013 +0100 TTY: do not reset master's packet mode which is in rawhide already. There's no CC to stable, so we'll have to look at bringing it back as I said in my previous comment.
Comment 13 Josh Boyer 2013-03-11 09:08:00 EDT
Added to F17/F18.
