I hadn't noticed that. Thanks!

BTW, this makes it slightly "harder" for someone unfamilar with FreeBSD
to find out whats happening; the message in /var/log/messages mentions
'ucomX', but there is no link to 'ttyUX'. Yes, the man page mentions
/dev/cuaU? under FILES, but perhaps the HISTORY section should have a
short notice that tells about the name change?
IMHO, at least.
Torfinn Ingolfsen,
