Symbolics terminal emulator works lousy

This is an aspect of the Telnet and TCP protocols.
Barry is exactly right. Ignore my earlier answer.
Some of the blame can be put on Symbolics. When you reboot a Lispm, the
processes that are running are not killed cleanly, so they can't close
their connections. SI:HALT doesn't kill processes because you might
want to do a Continue from the FEP.
But that's exactly what would happen if you pressed the Halt button on
any computer system.
There is no command that I know of
that does a clean shutdown.
If you do a :Reset Network before you halt, that will definitely close
everything on every network.
