Strange - I am leaning to my fellow posters theory that

I am not sure what you mean by that. Not being a Linux expert I

    - use a dialout port
    - use a port that does not require DCD (Carrier Detect) being active
Maybe you can map the to Linux terms.

That would be very seldom. I suspect still wrong wiring.
