This was my first suspicion, so I did a full reset of my KPC3+, then
put it into KISS mode and reset it.  I've done this a few times during
my troubleshooting just to be sure.  If I connect to it with a serial
comms application now I can't do anything with it until I send the
sequence that takes it out of KISS mode, so I'm fairly confident that
this isn't the issue.

The connect message doesn't seem to be coming from the JNOS TNC.  This
is actually the only reason why I currently have "ax25 bbscall"
populated in my autoexec.nos - I wanted to see if the remote side
would respond to this callsign (which the remote TNC has no knowledge
of,) which it does.
