When doing a telnet to a beta2 machine, the following message is
Red Hat Linux release 7.1.92 (Fairfax)
Kernel \r on an \m
\r and \m are not substituted correctly (this works for issue, but not for issue.net).
What telnet-server do you have installed? Is it the krb5 telnet server?
Never mind, fixed in telnet-server-0.17-14.
