Sad EtherFast 10/100 + 56k problem

Okay, a bit of mess but here it is.

RH 6.2, PCMCIA 3.1.15, EtherFast 10/100 +56K modem.

eth cable/connection works great.  Take the eth cable out,
plug it back in, no problems.  But the modem..  If you take
the eth cable out, then insert the phone cable into the modem
slot, test_modem will always return a poll error or such.  The
weird thing, test_modem will always work when the eth cable is plugged in!

I've tried configuring /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, commenting out
the various lines and restarting cardmgr, to no avail.

You have to eject the card, plug in the modem cable, then
insert back to get the modem recognised.  This is bearable but
there should be an easier way...
