For example, in telnet.c (lines 1295-1303):
outbuf = *buffer++;
out_count = 1;
if(outbuf == CURL_IAC)
outbuf[out_count++] = CURL_IAC;
Curl_write(conn, conn->sock[FIRSTSOCKET], outbuf,
There are also similar places in the file below this point.
In general, I think this is because telnet support is less elaborate in
libcurl. I have checked other places in code that looked frightening
(e.g., in ftp.c), but they are correct (at least they look so for me).
