When a telnet client first contacts a server, it spews a bunch of bytes
explaining what the telnet client does and does not support.  In theory, a
telnet server would then respond with a bunch of bytes explaining what the
server can and cannot do.  Both programs then adjust what features they use
to what the other can support.  Unfortunately, there is no code to support
this in the MOO (I've been meaning to get around to making some, but don't
hold your breath)  You might try hacking your do_login_command() to make
incomming connections binary, then use binary_decode() to filter out the
bunch of bytes.
