In my ~/.profile I have
ENV=$HOME/.kshrc;export ENV
SHELL=/bin/ksh;export SHELL   <---- I don't think this line is relevant

And in my ~/.kshrc I have
stty quit  intr  kill  erase  -noflsh ixon ixoff

Everything works fine for me, no need to escape my @'s in elm either.
I just checked from UA too and it works..

Hope this helps
