The problem is that wvdialconf (and other dialers) won't wait long
enough for the modem to power up (which takes approximately 3 seconds
after opening the port).

You should configure wvdial manually, and make sure it has a longer
timeout when sending the init string.

Paulus and I are trying to find a workaround, but that will requires
changes to the dialers & wvdialconf.
