So, I am not the only one with this problem?

I don't think so. First of all, I have to run the faxaddmodem script as
root, so this script should have all the permissions it could possibly
want, right?

Then the permissions of the device:

crw-rw----    1 root     dialout    4,  65 Apr  3 09:21 /dev/ttyS1

The user fax and sms are added to the group dialout, so there shouldn't
be a problem either:

# groups fax
fax : fax uucp dialout

The fax user has the same id as uucp, but a different (own) group
id. Shouldn't be a problem there either.
