Not too long ago, I was chastised for using the "/dev/cu word". I have had
no problems with my newer test installs using ttyS* for the /dev/mouse and
/dev/modem symlinks. Probably there are some old FAQ's and HOWTO's that
differ. Maybe even some of the other distributions. From what I remember,
I believe that one potential problem involved the proper locking and
unlocking of the resource. If it was only accessed as a ttyS*, the problem
was eliminated.
