   Looks like it might be your system.  The system I am typing this on is
a Dell model 310 running Dell UNIX 1.1 which is closely based on ISC's UNIX
3.2.1.   I have a 3com etherlink-II card in it - in fact this typing is
actually being done on another system ( that I access through
the ethernet via this card and rlogin (or telnet, depending on my mood :-).
It works fine for me.

  Sounds like it is something on your system....
