It sounds like you're getting messed up by the different modem
configurations required by uugetty and cu.  {uu}getty requires NO echo and
NO responses sent (E0 Q1).  cu requires the opposite for it's scripts to
work (E1 Q0).

The trick is to set your dip switches to reflect getty's requirements, and
add the E1Q0 to the modem init string in your Dialers entry (Xenix may use a
different file name).  The crucial element to getting this to work is to
ensure that the modem reinitializes when DTR is dropped (thus resetting for
the getty process when cu is finished).  On my US Robotics and Telebit
modems there is a register value (different on the different modems) that
specifies this behavior.  I don't know how Hayes handles this.

Hope this helps.
