I have a Digi mux also and have seen this. I think it has to do
with conserver attempting to open the port before the Digi drivers
are completely loaded and ready for connections. Anyway, I have had 
success using '^Eco' (that's control-e then c then o) to force 
conserver to re-open the device when it reports "line is down".
Doesn't help for logging until you go to the console for that line
and type it though. I haven't had a chance to do it yet but I am
going to try delaying the start of conserver during bootup to see
if that solves the problem.
