I don't know if this is a somehow 'known' problem or I am just missing

When I plug a pc or just an old HP terminal on my second serial port
which I configure in ttys to be:

tty01   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   dialup on secure

I can login, use the system, but sometime there is some missing 
chars in the prompt. Then, after a few commands, the output
just freeze.

Now, last time, when the ouput froze, I was able to issue a 'ls'
and nothing else. 

If I look the processes, ls is zombie 'Z+'.

I tried to kill the shell, but it wouldn't exit, it's now in a 
'trying to exit' state 'IEs'.

any hints?
