usb causing 5.3 release/stable crash?

I connect to the office machine via serial modem after office hours
and encountered no problems until I tried using one of those USB to
Serial adapters - I could connect alright but for less than 24 hours.
It's okay during the weekdays but the office machine would hang over
the weekend. Had to press the reset button. Unfortunately, it
wouldn't boot anymore. Reinstalled 5.3-release today. And it's down
after 4 hours remote dialin access.
I used 5.3-stable from sometime December 2004 which worked well until
I started using an ATEN UC-232 USB -> Serial adapter, serial modem and
mgetty. I read somewhere that /dev/ucom# would be replaced by
/dev/cuaU# - might that be the solution to my problem?
