E0793: Glink, 5250 disconnect on transmit due to IAC

Status: Fixed for GlinkW 7.1.3, 6.2.7, Fix available for GlinkJ 6.4

Glink could be disconnected from the host after hitting transmit. The
problem occured because IAC character in the TN5250 header packet (first 10
bytes) where not being doubled. This could only occur if the length of the
data packet Glink was transmitting to the host was a length ending in 255
(0xFF/IAC char), e.g. for packet lengths of; 00FF (255), 01FF (551), 02FF
(767) etc.

This problem would rarely be seen because most transmit back to the host
are considerably less than 255 bytes long as most forms only require the
sending of the modified variable fields.
