...except that it does not work in the default configuration, and  to
make  it  work  reliably  you  either  have  to  throttle speed below
acceptable values, or you have  to  use  external  trools  which  can
replace minicome (like kermit).

Hereby I hand out the UUOMA (Useless Use Of  Minicom  Award)  of  the
week to Robert Schwebel :-)

If you need kermit anyway, you  can  use  it  as  terminal  emulation
program right from the beginning and avoid all the other problems.
