: Well, I've got a few ideas for you.  Right off the bat I am wondering
: why you are using /dev/ttyS1 instead of /dev/cua1 (which is one of the
: standard call out devices).  As I remember, the /dev/ttySx's are
: normally used as call-in devices (whether or not this actually makes a
: difference to the system I do not know).

No.  /dev/cua? devices are deprecated, and should not be used.
/dev/ttyS? devices are preferred as this allows locking to occur.  This
was stated some time ago on the linux-kernel list I believe ... I'll
look for the citation (or someone else will post it, I'm sure)
