Further to my earlier reply... tip(1) does in fact support configuration through ~/.tiprc and adding: !tandem to it should work to disable XON/XOFF generation, too. Perusing the source reveals that cu(1) also uses that configuration file since tip and cu both call the same routine - vinit() - to initialise their variables and that's where ~/.tiprc is read. Not mentioned in the cu(1) man page, however, so that's another PR coming.
