there isn't a buffer problem or anything that i know of that would
cause what you are seeing.  does your patch-script issue a reboot at
the end?  i suppose it could be that the script finishes and goes about
rebooting before the output is able to come across the 9600 baud
connection.  seems unlikely to me, but it's the only thing that i can
think of right now that would fit the output you sent.  if it is the
case that it issues a reboot, you could just put something like a
'sleep 10' right before it and see if that fixes things up for you.  if
so, it has something to do with the serial connection being so slow
(the 'rebooting...' message that got mixed with the 'ls' output is
probably coming over stderr instead of stdout, so it's able to sneak
out before the other and cause the mixed up output - which also leads
me to think you've got a reboot happening before all the ls output is

anyway, i hope that helps in some way.
