Hi Larry,
Granted I do this differently, but I may be able to ease our concern about 
the up arrow thing...assuming that in your setup this does not happen all 
the time.
To make a clear distinction.  I am using ssh telnet in dos  to come into 
shellworld.  I therefore do not use speakup.
However there are times when, I suspect many are using shellworld for 
example, that I encounter the a b thing.
I may have finished with lynx, or doing something in pine.  things go 
silent for a few seconds, and not used to this since Dos works so swiftly, 
I move the up arrow key.  I get the a letter if i do this.  if I arrow down 
I get the b.
normally again this only lasts for a few seconds.
once the freeze is over though, the history as you call it, my getting the 
last action i have taken returns with no issues.
Personally I think it may be a shellworld thing do to people, or volume of 
stuff going on.
As for a client, I am using a package called ssh2021b.
It is a DOS package, but perhaps there is a Linux port?
The package has ssh TELNET, ssftp and TELNET, ftp as well.
Rather nice actually with some terrific tools for massive ftp downloads 

Just my take,
