Tru ECU :-) available from comp.sources.misc archives
(new version Real Soon Now).

The problem with standard cu is that it does not kill it's
receiver process when it forks with ~$, thus cu's rcvr swallows
some/much of the protocol traffic from the remote host.

Indeed, as the man page says, ~$ sends the OUTPUT of the forked
process to the line, but it, er, forks up your INPUT.
