It's encouraging to hear that this used to work in 5.X.  I am just  
upgrading to 5.1 and this has always been "broken" for me, so I can't  
tell if it was a recent update.  Can you post (or email me offline)  
the relevant output of "rpm -qa --last"?  We may be able to figure  
out what update caused this issue.

In the mean time, anyone have any info on Kermit for CentOS 5?  We  
have some Kermit scripts sent to us by one of our vendors, so we  
can't just easily migrate to another serial communications tool.
