If you could provide more info on the exact nature of this "bug" I'd be
interested. I wouldn't think it was possible for the firmware in the modem to
have any effect on either SLIP or PPP since these protocols work at the byte
level and thus ride "above" the level I'd expect the modem firmware to be using.

Or to put it another way, if there was something out of wack at the modem level
I'd expect neither SLIP nor PPP to work.
