How about sending a bug report?  I make it so easy for people to tell me 
when something is not quite right, but I never get bug reports ...

It works perfectly on 8088 class machines, which is as slow as you can 
get.  So to figure out what is wrong in your environment I would like to 
know the brand/type of machine, the date on the BIOS, which version of 
DOS (FreeDOS I assume), and any TSRs that you have loaded - especially 
ones related to power management.  One of the DOS power management TSRs 
had a bad side effect that resembled what you described.

mTCP generally uses BIOS routines for handling the keyboard.  This is 
generally very reliable and fast.
