FreeBSD does create a /dev/cuaU0. If I try to access it with minicom I get the message 'Cannot open /dev/cuaU0!' and the device disappears from /dev to be replaced with /dev/cuaU1. If I try to access /dev/cuaU1 with minicom that disappears, I get the 'Cannot open' message and /dev/cuaU0 reappears.
I tried multiple USB ports on the same machine and always got the same result.
Oddly 'stty -f /dev/cuaI0 raw' makes the device disappear for /dev and I get USB_ERR_TIMEOUT in dmesg.
It really looks like FreeBSD's kernel is messing up. If I get this to work I'll post how I did it.
