[ntp:questions] ldattach makes ttySx buffered !?

I'm running a soekris net4801 with openwrt 10.03. kernel with
LinuxPPS patch and ntpd 4.2.6p1.

Today I recognized that my /dev/ttyS1 gets a input buffer as soon as I run
ldattach PPS /dev/ttyS1

The buffer is hold until somebody connects to /dev/ttyS1 and reads it. This
is reproduceable with "cat" at any time.

ntpd gets confused by the input at start big time and needs really long to

I have not found the cause of this yet. Has somebody noticed similar behaviour?
