I have seen this problem already. It seems to happen on RH 9 only. I
have it on my todo list and plan to investigate it later. My guess is
that there is some problem with glibc libraries in RH 9 because this
happens also with older versions of ser and on RH 9 only.
There are no error messages in syslog when this happens.
