Because Solaris 2.2 has problems accepting incoming characters over the
builtin serial ports at higher speeds. Solaris 2.2 may work fine with
an SBus Serial Parallel Controller, which is what Ellis wrote about.
But watch out if you're using the builtin serial ports. Even at 19200
bps I have a few problems with Solaris 2.2 on an ELC's builtin ports;
at 38400 bps it hangs so often that it's unacceptable. I had no problem
even at 38400 bps when the ELC was running SunOS 4.1.2.
