That's a mostly correct solution -- I've seen some odd cases where
something else was also needed (if I just could remember what and where;
could be that some things acted strange when used through a pty -
Emacs shell window, perhaps?).
Another command you may need to enclose within a similar condition
is "tset" (if that's used anywhere any more).
stty and tset placed in improper places (unguarded in global shell rc
files, per-account rc files of "wrong" accounts) can make most
spectacular problems, e.g. break printing subsystems (seen on HP-UX).
