That's what I get for not doing my homework :)  Okay, so I have no idea
why it is sending B (other than it being a mistake).  I'm not even sure
why I thought the spec required ASCII/EBCDIC translation, since it says:
  "For transmission, the data are represented as 8-bit EBCDIC characters."
I'll change it to E whenever the source repository is accessible again.
