What does the RPC/SLIP - the app or the Kernel?

If you have no flow control is it possible that someone is dropping a byte
somewhere any recovering?

If your device is set at the right speed (check with stty -a < /dev/ttyS??? )
then what speed does :

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ttyS??? bs=1 count=10000

show, for my line set at 9k6 (on ttyS0) it's showing 1.0kB/s which
seems about right.

What's the serial card - is it an onboard card or a PCI plug in,
I've seen problems on Linux a few times where the device driver
has the speed of some plugin cards out by a factor of 8.
