SeqEd/PileUp problems with Telnet 2.5

We are currently having a major problem with NCSA Telnet 2.5 (Mac) and
the GCG sequence editors.

Our system: Digital AXP
            OSF/1
            GCG v8
            Mac NCSA Telnet 2.5

When users try to use the arrow keys to move around a sequence capital
letters are typed instead (D for <- etc..).

If Telnet 2.6 or VersaTerm are used for the terminal emulation, this does
not occur.

Has any one found a solution to this, other than upgrading 600 Macs from
2.5 to 2.6?

We have had a suggestion from GCG to set the terminal type within Telnet
to vt200 or vt220. This stops the arrow keys from functioning at all!

Thanx in advance for your help and time.
