Yes, it was obviously NEWCARD. An OLDCARD kernel does not freeze anymore.

Well, it seems you're right. First of all, I'm able to connect to my Nokia
6310i and initiate a PPP dialup connection with rfcomm_pppd - this really
rocks! Windows XP wasn't even able to setup the card and install the drivers
correctly - this must be the first time that I have some hardware that
is supported by FreeBSD but not by Windows :-)
But then, after a few minutes, the connection drops :-/ - it might have to
do with what you said about sio(4), I get some messages like
sio4: 1 more silo overflow (total 2)
Is there anything I can do to assist you in debugging it?
thanks again and regards,
