Yes, I just realized that after I posted, but it was still early in the
morning for me so I couldn't bear responding to myself.

Only thing I can think of, completely out of the blue, would be a very subtle
electronic timing issue.  But I don't understand the UARTs on today's PC's
enough to know if they buffer, etc.  So this might mean that the particular
PC on which you're testing in Linux is having the problem... I no longer
remember if you said whether or not you've tested on any other machines with
Linux and with Windows.
