Interesting how this keeps coming up.  I must confess, I asked the same
question about six months ago.  Anyway, the bottom line is... the OBM on a
3B1 will not connect to a Telebit if the modem is using locked interface
speeds.  The only way for an OBM to connect to a Telebit is to have the
Telebit allow auto-bauding.  I remember hearing of someone that rewrote
getty (or was it uugetty?).  I'm pretty sure that this getty (or whatever)
solved the problem with out auto-bauding.
