Looks to me like you're running mgetty on the same port, and you've managed to 
get kermit not to lock the port, so mgetty is resetting the modem while you're 
using it.

The most common way of getting into this situation is to call the port by 
different names in the two programs (i.e /dev/ttyS0 & /dev/modem, or 
/dev/ttyS0 and /dev/cua0).

Try switching off mgetty (or whatever it is that is running on the modem 
port), and see if the problem goes away.  If it does, make sure that all 
programs refer to the port by one name (i.e. /dev/ttyS*)

Cheers, Phil.
