Er, not in this case, since the modem shouldn't grab the line until
asked. There is no need to disable dial tone detection - it won't make
any difference. The problem is not the dial tone, but the fact that the
dial tone has "expired", because no dialing has taken place during the
POTS dial period. This problem is caused by ALSA. More specifically with
ALSA startup when KDE starts.
