Comment(by BillK):

 ok, found the difference, but needs a serial guru to make sense of it:)

 I straced qtopia (working) and the mux (not working) and found that there
 is a difference in the termio c_cflags used.
 qtopia: c_cflags=0x18b2
 mux: c_cflags=0x800018b2

 According to "bits/termio.h" (if I have decoded it right) the mux is
 setting CRTSCTS flowcontrol.
 However, this is again set a couple of lines later using an IOCTL.  qtopia
 only sets CRTSCTS using the IOCTL.

 if I use stty to force it off, the repeating " AT COMMAND READY" messages
 stop, and I can again communicate with the modem via minicom etc.  If the
 bit is set, all I get are the messages.

 The weirdest part is that after it uses the ioctl, qtopia appears to have
 reset the uart to 0x800018b2 (which is actually what I expect), and keeps

 I have not been able to get the mux to behave this way so far, however I
 can cure the "AT COMM..." messages by just turning CRTSCTS off using the
 "stty" command.
