The text following "peer died" isn't terribly useful.  telnetd logs
"peer died" when read() returns a zero length, usually indicating that
the remote side of the connection either reset or closed the
connection.  The value of errno in that case isn't well defined, and
could be any random result, possibly including some errors internal to
the C library that you wouldn't otherwise see.

jbarlow> Last login: Tue Dec  3 22:42:58 from client
jbarlow> Connection closed by foreign host.

Hm.  It sounds like the client is also unexpectedly seeing a
connection close.

Have you tried running the client or server with various debug options
