The serial ports reset their state upon each close.

That's why this happens.

I've found that I have better luck with "cu", but you might need something
like this in /etc/uucp/port

port tty01
 type modem
 device /dev/tty01
 speed 57600
port tty02
 type direct
 device /dev/tty02
 speed 9600

One of those should work fine.

Either that, or adding the ttyflags for "local" or "softcar".
