Update

Patch incorporated, so this is now purely archival material.

python telnetlib fix

Purpose

Fix python's telnetlib specifically its IAC handling.

telnetlib is unable to connect to a few telnet daemons because of improper IAC handling, this is a oneliner to reject WILL messages which then allows many more (all ?) telnet daemons to work with it, namely fixes interaction with FreeBSD.

How to Apply

 get python release 1.6a2
	(e.g. ftp://ftp.python.org/pub/python/src/)
 tar xvzf python-1.6.tar.gz
 cd python-1.6
 patch -p1 < ../file.patch (or whatever you called it)
 ./configure
 make
