AFAIK: The serial interface of older, SBus era machines has no hardware
FIFO, or a very short FIFO. So it is normal that they loose characters
if they come in too fast. I saw the same effect on my SBus machines.

Regarding serial break and ddb(4): There may be a sysctl(8) to enable /
disable ddb(4) upon break.
