That sounds awfull. If half of the data is lost while *sending*,
then receiving will hardly be possible (I know from experience,
that 76800 bps won't get you anywhere).

Leo, is it possible to get that nasty SCSI driver back in line? :-)

IIRC `hardflow' can only be specified in the devices file, unlike
the `speed' command which may appear in either file.
