Digi TS8 serial console server funkiness

Hopefully someone here has wrestled with serial server oddities and can
shed some light on this...
I've got a serial console server made by Digi (TS8 PortServer) setup in
a fairly vanilla mode: 9600-8-N-1....telnet to port 500X gets you to
port X. Setup for a vt100 terminal type. Other VTs I tried didn't seem
to make a difference.
Problem is when attached to a Cisco switch I had laying around I get
seemily random garble output when accessing the console of a remote
Cisco device. (e.g. "show run" will get a few garbled lines halfway
through, Holding down Enter will produce some garbled text every few lines).
When attached to a Juniper device everything appears normal. The
problem follows the port if I swap the Cisco device to the port the
J-box was on.
Other issues I've noticed..cannot use arrow keys to search command buffer.
My Google-fu is failing me in coming up with the right name for the
effect I'm seeing...
