Strange; we run our Telebit locked at 19200, with XON/XOFF flow control

When uucp startup occurs, the Telebit appears to automaticlly switch off
flow control for the session (during spoofing).  I know that uucp does in
the device flags, since that can be easily inspected.

This allows lowspeed logins on the Telebit without trouble, and high speed
uucp connections.  It all works.

We >can't< run hardware flow control, since we have an Equinox board, which
doesn't support both it and modem control on the same port.
