Hmmm, never heard of this problem before. My best guess is that the stty
commands in the faxaddmodem script is confusing your system - it maybe
worth checking the parameters used to see if they're valid on your system?

# /bin/stty --version
stty (GNU sh-utils) 1.16

is the version on my RedHat clone Linux system. With 4.1beta1 I would get
ignorable warning messages of the type :

stty: standard input: unable to perform all requested operations

which is now fixed in the CVS. If you have a later version of stty then it
is possible we have a major bug on our hands.

Good luck,
