Description of problem:
I installed fedora yesterday and used r-c-n to set up the numbers for
my ISP. I was unable to dial out and the tones sounded 'odd'. When I
looked at /etc/wvdial.conf it appeared to contain two errors compared
to the one I'd archived from RH9. Below is the top of that file:

Modem = /dev/modem
Baud = 115200
SetVolume = 1
Dial Command = ATDT
Init1 = ATZ
Init3 = ATM1L1
FlowControl = Hardware (CRTSCTS)

The flow control line is bad it should read
FlowControl = CRTSCTS

also the original Init3 was ATM1

It is possible (likely) that I hadn't tried to edit the modem hardware
prior to use so it inherited a poor default.

Having fixed these, the modem works. However, when I use r-c-n to
activate the connection the status is not updated, this makes it
impossible to deactivate the connection.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Haven't tried to reproduce bad wvdial.conf yet. For poor status follwo
steps above.

Actual Results:  as above

Expected Results:  I'd expect r-c-n to dispaly modem as active when it
was active.
