I've looked through the configuration scripts for zsh 2.5.03 and it
defines CLOBBERS_TYPEAHEAD for ultrix and dgux.  It defines
TTY_NEEDS_DRAINING for ultrix.  People on these machines should check
whether either of these are needed.

What is the relationship/lineage between ultrix and dgux?

I've changed the patch around a little.  Test this and make sure it is
