The problem might be caused by foxbase turning off flow control in order to
emulate dbase III's <CTRL-S> input key.  You might try to lower your baud rate 
on the terminal comm line to see if your terminal can handle a full feed
at the lower speed.

My guess as to why it is worse over an rlogin is that with rlogin you are
getting bursts of characters (TCP/IP packets) to the terminal as opposed to
a steady stream.
