My impression is that 1.2.13/14 has a bug in the tty/ppy/ppp/net/serial
code somewhere which makes it unuseable as a large (64) port terminal server.
It sure would be nice if this was resolved for 2.0. Jon, Is there any chance
of you testing the latest 1.99.x on your big rocketport/cyclades systems
to see if the problem has been fixed. I know you thought it might be the
cyclades but I see your rocketport has crashed now. If you really have time
to burn ;) , put the rocketport back on a 486 where it crashed sooner and
see how it does with 1.99.x.
