As already mentioned: If I add comments at the end of the lines it

Sounds like a funny bug? 

But if I try to use /dev/ttyl1 I get a message about a unknown interrupt
and the output of /dev/ttyl1 hangs after the first character.

I have a M3106 DZQ11 that I can use instead.

The DHV is a DEC M3104:
dhv ? csr 160440 vector 310 didn't interrupt.
The DL11 card is a clone made by Sigma.

Noticed that already. I am really not used to Unix stuff of that age.
