Serial port overruns in 2.1.9x?

Sorry to send two messages - this problem is completely different from the
other one, though, so I thought it best to separate them.

I also get the 'TCPv4 bad checksum' messages, and my PPP throughput is
also dramatically lower in 2.1.9x than with 2.0.33 or 2.1.89 (FTP
transfers at around 1.4K/sec vs. 3.2K/sec over a 28.8 modem).

I've also noticed, however, that when using rz and sz to send files
to/from my shell account, I get massive CRC errors with 2.1.9x, which I
don't get if I reboot with 2.0.33... which would seem to indicate that
there are serial port overruns going on with 2.1.9x which aren't there in

Again, I just thought I should bring this up as a possible bug that should
be fixed before 2.2.0.
