At least in the UNIX 386 driver for Specialix there is a bug
that is terrible enough that I can't make this board work properly
If you have strapped your modem to hold CD high only when a connection
is established, you can't dial out. If you open the modem control
device with the O_NDELAY flag set (by specifying ttyAxx,M in
Devices), uucico aborts as soon as the O_NDELAY flag is cleared,
probarbly because the driver sends a SIGHUP to the process.
For those who are intererested, I use 386/ix 2.0.1 with
the 2.02A Specialix driver.

You have better experiences then I have, I reported this bug in
August this year and did not even receive any acknowledgement.
