You might try installing the pAS9 patch, which makes the MOO a bit more
forgiving when it comes to telnet programs.  The telnet included with
Windows is notoriously sucky.  What that says about "standard Windows"
programs, is a question left to the student.   :-)

You can find that server patch at Alex Stewart's Patch Repository (he's
also the "AS" in the patch name, since he wrote it).  Try:

At Diversity University MOO we find it especially useful for fixing
backspace problems people with lousy telnet clients typically report.
Incidentally, the 1.8.0p6 version of the server makes some changes that
were supplied by the 1.7.9 version of the pAS9 patch, and were therefore
left out of the 1.8.0 version of the pAS9 patch.  It might be that
upgrading to 1.8.0p6, which you should do anyway, will fix the particular
problem you are reporting.
