Sounds a bit like having the modem set to echo and verbose result codes.
When the modem sends "RING" or something else to NetBSD, NetBSD echoes
it all back, and the modem echoes it back to NetBSD, which echoes it
back to modem....

At least, this is one way of creating the problem you're seeing. :)
