That doesn't solve the problem of `sticky' line disciplines (which I also
noticed recently while working on a pet line-discipline-(ab)using project).

IMHO, the original poster is correct in that there should be a Better Way.

If there are no objections (such as "but this is how it's *supposed* to
work, and everyone else does it this way too") I'll commit a change in the
next couple of days which will reset things to the default termios(4) line
discipline on close(2).

Cheers, Steve
