Have you just loaded a new version of Python by any chance.  Line 272 in my
2.2 copy of telnetlib has 'send' instead of 'sendall', the latter seems to be
the better of the two so I guess it's a newer version.  Which makes me suspect
they've broken something else while working on it, in which case I'd report it
as a bug.  Unless of course, your code fiddles about with the underlying
sockets and things of the telnet object.
