RE: terminal characterestics

Hey Igor and Nicolas,
    Your mails gave me a pointer and I tried setting the TERM variable on
the remote host to vt220 (default was xterm) and now things are working,
although I need to explore more.

Thanks !

I have the same problem when I rlogin to AIX hosts. The TERM 
variable is set to xterm. I have tried some other value, aixterm 
works a little better. But the best way I found is to replace rlogin 
(run xterm.exe -e rlogin "%2@%1") with telnet (run xterm.exe -e 
telnet -l %2 %1).
