->if anyone else has had simular problems????

I had the same problems, with the kernel form around 4th of september
I had to tweak the getty options in order to log in over a saerial line
and now this dammn shit hits me again.  Who is making those changes that 
affect the serial lines on i386 and where?  In com.c there is nothing that 
seems obvious to me.

The _BETA kernel as of mow is unable to handle my downlinks at all.
The uplink is via a CSLIP link build up via a hacked dip, and that works fine.
I heavily suspect the getty/login/com-combo doing somwthing really wierd.
