SUMMARY - bad pseudo-terminal -> telnet failures

Thanks to the quick response I received to my plea (regarding bad
pseudo-terminals causing telnet failures), I now know what to look for:
background jobs hanging around with the pty open and no one logged in on
the associated tty. Nuke the background job and all is well.

Someone sent me a summary posted back in October which has lots of relevant
stuff and I will try to forward it to everyone requesting it.
