Additional Information:
i'm a newbie. be kind if this is a duplicate. i searched the archives.	
kernel - 2.4.9-34
telnet-0.17-18.1  i'm not sure that this is the culprit.
util-linux-2.11f-17.7.2

ssh works fine. only telnet is affected.

Also RedHat 7.2 and 7.3 are affected from this problem.
rlogin, it has the same problem.
