Description

xmlterm does not open window when clicking on an telnet link. At some point in
time this was working. The reason seems to be a change in the nsIContentHandler
interface.

This patch to xmlterm-service.js seems to correct the problem

With the patch the xmlterm window opens, however there are currently other
problems (missing prompt) with xmlterm preventing me from looking further into
this. 

What is the telnet handler supposed to do? Does it really open a telnet session
or does it just open the xmlterm window to allow you to type the telnet command
yourself?

The xmlterm DLL is not getting built because of changes in the Mozilla build
set-up. The line "FORCE_STATIC_LIB = 1" in xmlterm/base/Makefile.in needs to
removed to make it build. I will check in this change (and also the patch to
xmlterm-service.js) when the tree reopens.

xmlterm does not actually implement the telnet protocol. It simply opens up a
shell window.

If protozilla makes it into the tree you should consider dropping the telnet
handler in xmlterm to avoid conflicts/let the better support win.

Fix checked in. xmlterm now works with the trunk. Also, xmlterm no longer
handles the telnet protocol (to avoid conflicts with protozilla etc.)
