with a -current kernel from this morning (userland about a month old), I
get the following panic when trying to connect with ppp

panic: kernel diagnostic assertion "mutex_owned(&tty_lock)" failed: file "/home/plunky/src/sys/kern/tty.c", line 1396

any ideas?

The PPP connection is over bluetooth, but the bluetooth connection seems
to be working fine. The panic happens just after I see

Nov 10 11:45:36 galant pppd[397]: Serial connection established.

in the logfile..
