Hellband: Control S hangs on Vector Linux


a repost from the hellband list :

The game compiled, and runs properly, but when I use Ctrl-s to
save the program freezes and you have to close the window. When you
restart the save has been made and you can continue.
When I used Ctrl-x to exit everything seemed alright until I
restarted the game only to be informed the character had died from a
panic save. (Faerie, Seelie Fae, High Mage, Chaos)
Otherwise it's a great game.
Since Hellband has a 'venerable' code base, I would expect that maybe someone encountered this already in Vanilla or a variant and remembers how (s)he fixed it ?

* Are you ready for something else ? Hellband 0.8.8 is out! *

That's the gcu version, and you need to disable the stop ^s and start ^q stty settings.
You can do it from the command line with
$ stty raw

before running the program

$stty sane at the end.

there's also a program interface which I forget how to do.

Vanilla does this correctly. Check out main-gcu.c

If you need help I can take a look later and point you to the right place.
