I have observed the same. However, if I closed xterm in which telnet was
running, instead of pressing Ctrl-C, the behaviour would change and
sizes were different. I agree with you that telnet probably continued
reading, although not displaying it. There is no way an 80 MB file (in
my test) could fly by my eyes that quickly :-)
