I noticed in the original report that this is for the powerpc.
There're occasional odd reports that make me suspect there's a compiler
bug (or some platform-dependent bug in the termio/termios code).
I can't reproduce this on my Intel box (and don't think I could test
it remotely - firewall & proxy issues).
