-clocal and the wineserver

Good day!

Any time clocal falls out of the modem's termios (say I use cu -l on it)
the wineserver hangs trying to open it, or at least the app hangs, and I
haven't found a way to kill it without killing the wineserver.  Both 16
and 32 bit versions of juno are affected.

I haven't really investigated it very thouroughly, but I wasted a lot of
time restoring backup versions of the app and wine.

Should I look into mickey-mousing the open to avoid the problem, or - is
it really a wineserver problem which I am probably not even marginally
competent to muck with?  I'd be glad to make traces or winedbg output,
but it seems the problem should be easy to duplicate.

Hmmm, setting clocal back on from another terminal unhangs the app.
That is neater than killing the wineserver, I guess.

terminal.exe from wfw 3.11 behaves similarly, with an extra twist:
it hangs on the Win16Mutex until somebody sets clocal (well, I guess
carrier detect would work, too).
