I first thought I can not reproduce this at all, but now I had a closer
look and it turns out that this _always_ happens when my USB serial
adapter is disconnected from USB while I have a 'cu' session running on
it. I didn't look into the sources or bisect it, but this is certainly a
new effect which came in during the last days.
I'm running weekly'ish updated git kernels on my desktop machine and use
this adapter every day, usually without problems.
