OK, it's just me.  Turns out I hadn't noticed the DCE label on the
diagram which I was comparing to a DTE diagram.  Sigh.

One last datapoint:  Perle has their TruePort device driver which gives
real Solaris tty's, over the network to ports on the JetStream box.  I gave
this a try with conserver, and found the same delayed-bursty output behavior
at 9600bps as when using reverse telnet.  So it seems inherent in their
buffer-polling code.

Thanks for the guidance.
