For those who aren't already aware of it, there are some firmware
versions out there which do funny things like spontaneously dropping
out of KISS mode or resetting to the default parameters.  KISS-only
eprom images are available for TNC-2 clones (and TAPR sells eproms
containing the code).  I found out a long time ago that was an easier
way to go, since I only use applications which interface with KISS.
