    faxgetty is telling me the following all the time:
    Aug 25 01:01:35 6D:caravaggio FaxGetty[9471]: OPEN /dev/ttyf2
    Aug 25 01:01:35 6D:caravaggio FaxGetty[9471]: Purge stale UUCP lock
    Aug 25 01:01:40 6D:caravaggio FaxGetty[9471]: MODEM ZYXEL E2864/V 1.13
    Aug 25 01:06:35 3D:caravaggio FaxGetty[9471]: CAUGHT SIGNAL 15
    Aug 25 01:06:35 6D:caravaggio FaxGetty[9471]: CLOSE /dev/ttyf2
    Aug 25 01:06:35 6D:caravaggio FaxGetty[9481]: OPEN /dev/ttyf2
    Aug 25 01:06:40 3D:caravaggio FaxGetty[9481]: CAUGHT SIGNAL 15

Your faxgetty(1M) log locks like you have entries with
"respawn" and "off" for the same tty-line in your inittab(4F) file;
please check;
