Hmm, I just reinstalled frameworkd and it works without problems.
Can you try the same?
2. remove everything fso related
$ dpkg -P fso-config-gta02 fso-frameworkd fso-frameworkd-wireless-glue fso-gpsd fso-sounds-openmoko-nonfree nodm gpsd
3. I got some warnings about non empty directories and removed them manually
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install fso-frameworkd fso-frameworkd-wireless-glue fso-sounds-openmoko-nonfree fso-config-gta02
5. disbable frameworkd
$ mv /etc/init.d/fso-frameworkd /etc/init.d/fso-frameworkd.backup
7. ssh and start screen with 3 windows (in this order):
$ frameworkd # and wait some seconds
8. go outside for at least 10 minutes
9. check screen window 3
optional: strace the pid/fd (get them with `lsof | grep ttySAC1`)
