That's your application.

If configured with ",default" it sets all control characters to
_POSIX_VDISABLE, including the 'VMIN' and 'VTIME' characters.


	for (i=0; i < NCCS; i++) {
		tios.c_cc[i] = _POSIX_VDISABLE;


     If the value of one of the changeable special control characters (see
     Special Characters) is {_POSIX_VDISABLE}, that function is disabled; that
     is, no input data is recognized as the disabled special character.  If
     ICANON is not set, the value of {_POSIX_VDISABLE} has no special meaning
     for the VMIN and VTIME entries of the c_cc array.

_POSIX_VDISABLE is '\377', so your read waits for 255 chars and times
out after 255 tenth of a second.
