I have it working perfectly.  AT&T V/386 3.2.1, IPC 802 multiport serial
adapter, uugetty 1.1 3.2 06/24/88.  I prefer hardware flow control.
Incoming and outgoing uucp and logins work fine.

I did write a daemon that sits and clears CLOCAL on unused dialup lines
every so often, because of a bug in the IPC drivers, but that's not
uugetty's fault (UUCICO forgets to clear it if login fails).  No
compromise has been necessary.  It works all the time.
