Have you set up anything in /etc/defaults for the getty setup?
Check the serial HOWTO for details, but, basically you can create a ttySx (x=serial port #) and setup auto answer, modem init straings, etc.

I had this same problem once.

Hopefully yours is caused from the same thing.

I had to make sure the auto assigned gateway for users was the
same as the PC they were dialing into.  When I had it set to
a different PC, it'd lock up.
