But the same rz/sz causes no problems when used with my old
tip binary under otherwise identical conditions!

Right - it uses termio instead, which should still work.

Subject: lost OPOST
If I call ioctl(TIOCGETP) on a tty followed by a ioctl(TIOCSETP), the OPOST
bit gets turned off. I'm told there is a fix for this but I can't find it
in the bugs database. Can someone point me to it?
