The good news is that I don't see this issue any more with 2.6.31-rc7
on x86. The bad news is that the first time I reported this issue, for
-rc3 or -rc4 I think, I thought it was fixed in -rc5 only to see it
reappear in -rc6 on x86 and in -rc5 on ARM. So I'd like to keep this
open another week while I run more regression tests on non-x86 platforms.

While I don't suspect any arch-specific problems in the pty/tty code,
I do suspect timing/race-type problems which are obviously affected
by platform speed etc.
