People often do refer to serial transmission rates as baud, but that'
s incorrect when there's no modem involved, it's bits per second or
bps.  Higher transmission rate modems get more than one bit per baud,
as I recall, so it's also incorrect to talk about a 33.6 baud modem to
modem link.

I have not experienced the garbled characters.  I was hoping your UART
being overrun at high bps was the cause, but I'm sure it can manage
9600 cleanly.  So I'm not positive the pending fixes will cure that
