This is because modm0dev only checks every 200ms whether data on the
serial port arrived and possible wakes the selecting process.

I do slip over modem1 all the time (MintNet uses select(), too) and it
works perfectly well. What programs have you tried on /dev/modem1?

Don't know about such problems.

No. Mint 1.11's modem1 should now be as fast as modm0dev.

Bart Schuller has reenabled inet support in my port (term-108.tgz), but
not, there are no newer ports available. If I get the time I will probably
port the newest available version (is it 1.06?).
