Public bug reported:

minicom, while connected to for example /dev/ttyUSB0  - displays
incoming data.

*no* keystrokes are sent out.
When closing minicom - some data is sent (a TX led will flash shortly)
- the same hardware works fine with sercom, cutecom etc - but I miss minicom.
-Reproduced this problem on three computers.  - not sure when it was introduced, but it worked before.

to reproduce, take any RS232 adapter and connect TX to RX, (or pin 2-3) - you should see what you write without local echo, or get double characters with local echo when TX is connected to RX
