Why won't my workspace let me make a new request after it loads the response?

Whenever I get the response back from the telnet server it doesn't go back to treehouse:~/workspace$ so everything I type seems to be part of the response back from telnet.

Press Control + ] and you should see a telnet> prompt

This is the same issue I'm having except typing Control + ] doesn't send me back to the root directory. It takes me to 'telnet>' so typing another telnet request after that just gives me an 'invalid command' error.
