i have noticed this as well. i got around it by doing the ioctl a 2nd
time. works reliably so long as you make at least 2 ioctl()s, and as

Why Linux? source code. POSIX. tcpip. job control. support from the authors.
drivers for most hardware. because one terminal or process is never enough.
forget the other O/Ss, i use Linux- the choice of a gnu generation.
