Well... You said it yourself, 2.4.19 works fine ;-) And,
actually, there was no discovery and irtty changes from 2.4.18 to
2.4.19, so I can't explain that.

That's not good. This clearly point to a problem with the
hardware or the serial driver. All the frames we receive contain
parity errors, not much we can do with them...
If you look at the irdadump, we don't receive any data from
the Palm, so it's happening below the IrDA stack. Not good.
