Disable Putty CTRL-S (XOFF)

Using putty with programs that bind keys to CTRL-S may be slighly problematic since putty will send XOFF, which will basically freeze your terminal until you send XON (CTRL-Q).

To disable XOFF, add to your .bashrc file the following lines:

stty ixany
stty ixoff -ixon
stty stop undef
stty start undef
