since sometime after dec30, i have had lots of fifo overruns on
ttya on my ELC. it's connected to a 28k8 modem, and is ppp0.
sometimes i get as many as 1 every 4 seconds. my syslog is full
of them. :-(
this of course is extremely harsh on the throughput of the ppp
i can make kermit show it very easily:

Type ? or HELP for help.
C-Kermit>set line /dev/ttya
C-Kermit>set sp 38
/dev/ttya, 38400 bps
Connecting to /dev/ttya, speed 38400.
The escape character is Ctrl-\ (ASCII 28, FS)
Type the escape character followed by C to get back,
or followed by ? to see other options.
each of the O's is really an OK, but the K got lost! sending 3(?) chars
made it lose. the i typed 'at', 'ate1', 'at', and 'atz'.
