Well, in svn they aren't using svn keywords for the date so it's not 
really correct. Its newer than than 2003, about 8 months old right now.


Yeah, I don't know why its not attempting to send the init string for 
you. cidbcast seems to be pretty flakey for me too. Since I upgraded my 
motherboard and built a new kernel, I can't even get it to parse the 
response buffer correctly anymore. I know it works since minicom works 
just fine under my user plus I've used it for quite some time in the 
past. But I just can't seem to get it to work with my limited knowledge 
of C. You may try svn just to see if that works for you. It doesn't for 
me but I can atleast initialize the modem.
