New submission from Gregory P. Smith <greg at krypto.org>:
telnetlib uses select.select. This limits it to being able to work when file descriptors are still below FD_SETSIZE (often 1024) meaning it can't be used in some large programs today.
It should use poll.
(it is probably easy to fix this and the telnetlib EINTR issue1049450 at the same time)
