 Per communications with Peter Jeremy and Gavin Atkinson:
 Applied patches kern/152254 and kern/158086 to 8.2-RELEASE(-p2) and
 Testing of Digi Acceleport Xr (8-port) PCI went as follows:
 	Modem (dial-out) no issues.
 	Modem (dial-in) still waiting for digi hardware at remote end. (This may
 not happen).
 	Serial console:
 		8.2-RELEASE(-p2) no issues.
 		9.0-CURRENT strange behavior with extended keypad keys PAGE-UP, PAGE-DOWN,
 			and DELETE echos "~" character to display and exits dialog application.
 			This behavior was reproducible on COM1 (uart) port,
 			on SIIG (puc) ports and on USB (uplcom) port and is
 			probably not a digi driver issue.
 		The dialog application to reproduce this problem is simply:
 			dialog --inputbox "Enter date?" 9 40 "$( date )" 2> /dev/null
 		This is dialog on a 7.4-RELEASE system, not the new dialog in 9.0-CURRENT.
