Brian,

Thanks for this. However, dosemu is not a forked package and Devuan uses
Debian's package directly.  You would be better reporting this to Debian's BTS.

Thanks

Mark

Package: dosemu
Version: 1.4.0.7+20130105+b028d3f-2+b1

I'm a ham radio operator and president of EastNet. We use pc/FlexNet for
our radios and terminal node controllers (TNCs). The TNCs require 6pack
eproms. 6pack is very touchy with the FIFO and UART type. Under
dosemu_1.4.0+svn.2080-1_i386.deb, the TNCs behave just perfectly fine
but under the newer/current DOSEmu package they do not. Data is grunged
and they have a much harsher duty cycle making the current DOSEmu
unusable. 

It acts as if it's somehow presetting the comports to a 16650 or greater
UART with no way to change this. I don't know if this affects other
DOSEmu systems that may perhaps use dialup modems but with a radio
modem/TNC it's not at all usable.
