smsd: Problem occurred internal to model specific code.

Hi all,

I'm using gnokii/smsd on a FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE box that has a Nokia CS-18 
"internet stick" attached (via USB).  It is used only for sending and receiving 
sms messages.

It will work great for days or even weeks, but then it stops for no apparent 
reason.  The smsd.log file contains these two lines:

27 Mar 2011 11:43:26: Sending to +xxxxxxxxxxx unsuccessful. Error: Command 
timed out.
27 Mar 2011 11:43:28: Sending to +xxxxxxxxxxx unsuccessful. Error: Problem 
occurred internal to model specific code.

..and smsd dies.  Restarting smsd, or issuing any gnokii command results in 
this (after a long pause):

Telephone interface init failed: Command timed out.
GSM/FBUS init failed! (Unknown model?). Quitting.
Error: Command timed out.

The CS-18 starts up in a USB mode where it looks and acts like a flash drive 
(so that you can plug it into a PC and autorun the software and driver 
installation).  To put it into modem mode I use a utility called 
"usb_modeswitch" (until I do this, there will be no /dev/cua* entry for the 
device).  This has to be done any time I power cycle the thing.  If I remove 
and reinsert the device and run this command, it will start working again for 
any number of days, until it dies again.

In smsd.conf I have:

device = /dev/cuaU2
pin = ignore
pre_init = no
init =
init2 =
incoming = 2
baudrate = 19200
rtscts = no
check_network = 0
eventhandler = PATH_TO_MY_SCRIPT
check_network = 0
number = xxxxxxxxxxx
detect_message_routing = no

I'm not sure if it's a matter of using proper init strings, or if it's an issue 
with gnokii, or if it's a USB driver issue in FreeBSD.

Any thoughts?
