Ticket #4446 (closed defect: fixed)
Signalling break on serial line not implemented

Setting bit 6 of the LCR register of a serial port has no effect as can be seen in the sourcecode. A structure member is set but never evaluated. It should signal a break condition to the outside world (in my case to a device connected to the host port).
Note that this is similar to bug #4358 but in the opposite direction.
