KAM problems

I had similar problem with missing characters but found my problem was slow
uarts on the serial card that I was using to feed the KAM+.  Changed to a
16550 UART based serial card and because it has added buffering I no longer
lost the characters.  The older serial UARTS did not have buffering except
for one character or so and would cause some programs to loose a character
now and then.  Just a thought.  Have not had any problem with the KAM+
hanging up with XPWIN or any other programs for that matter.
