[openssl-users] openssl s_client B as first char sends heartbeat

I've come across something strange.  When using openssl s_client and trying to send B (uppercase only) as the first character on any line it causes a heartbeat to be sent.  Is this a bug or a feature?  Any way to escape it to send the uppercase B without sending the heartbeat?
