FSO - GPSD problem

I'm using the testing branch of FSO and was unable to get GPS working right yet.
The version is 2.34-r9, so I think it's somewhat current.

The first problem was the antenna not seated well (resolved, obviously).
The other problem is that the gpsd itself (?) is behaving odd.
I was trying to troubleshoot using the GPSD FAQ. I found out that

gpsd -D 4 -N /dev/ttySAC1

provides some useful output and I can try to connect to the gpsd via telnet.
Trying that, I noticed that most of the time the connection is accepted but stalled... sometimes I get to the GPSD "console" and the daemon prints:

gpsd: client connect on 6

but usually telnet just prints nothing.
This occurs regardless of the IP I'm using (loopback or ethernet), and port (tried 998), dropbear's ssh also can listen properly.

Is there anything I can do to make sure it's not my fault before filing a bug report?
