I get similar strange results as well on Server Works BIOS based
machines.  I usually talk to them through a pm25.  For me, I have to
make sure flow control is off on both ends (no software, no hardware).
Also, login gets confused if you start with an enter for some reason.
I can generally recover from this seemingly hung state with a bunch of
CTRL+d's.  Not sure if it will help you, but the symptons are somewhat
like what I see.

Whats odd is that it all works just fine from the loader prompt and if
I boot into single user mode.  But soon as getty/login take over, its
very picky.
