well, i'm not sure why it would matter *that* much, but it's serial
weirdness so it's worth a shot.  if you change '9600e' to '9600n',
you'll get 8n1 with conserver as well.  it *might* help.

also, when you connect with the console client and try and interact
with the device, do you get a 'console is read-only' type message?  if
so, it's a permissions problem on /dev/ttyC48 and i supposed it's
always possible that minicom is just overriding it.  unlikely, but
perhaps there's something here.

otherwise, i'm not sure.  i seem to remember others having difficulty
with the cyclades z boards.  or maybe it was another type of board.  if
there is any sort of flow control settings you can adjust, maybe that
would help.  or if you can view the serial settings with stty when
minicom and conserver are connected and compare them, maybe we'll see
an extra setting somewhere that would make a difference.

i'm kinda shooting in the dark, but maybe the muzzle blast light up
something interesting.
