I think there must be something about the debian distribution that
creates the requirement to use /dev/ttyS? instead of /dev/cua?, even
though this is not necessary when using pppd directly. I don't know why,
but we should find out how we can fix the problem (long-term) and/or
document it in the /usr/doc/diald documents (short-term).
Maybe something in /dev needs to be changed? Sorry, I don't know much
about this kind of thing.
