I was thinking... An easy implementation also would be something like 
this (and should work in every distro, also if it could be just a 
workaround since it uses more resources for doing something already done 
by others):

while true; do if grep -q RING /dev/ttySAC0; then $COMMANDS; fi; done

BTW, the Hackenberger workardound to make qtopia use gsm0710muxd, should 
help in this too... Isn't it?
