Is the TERM environment variable set correctly?

No, tset doesn't set the TERM variable.
If you set that, you don't need tset anymore.

My TermInfo database has also the entry "ms-vt100". That gives the best
results for the telnet of Windows.

BTW. if you search for a better terminal/telnet/ssh, try the 
program teraterm.

I already mentioned this problem before, but nobody cared. :-(
