You're the guy who asked about character-at-a-time telnet mode. If you 
have used it anywhere, the telnet client would send the backspace or del 
chars immediately because it's not buffering the line and you would have to 
deal with them yourself. Maybe this is your problem?

As far as I know TF doesn't care about telnet control codes and will 
wait until you're done editing the line locally before sending regardless.
