And what it will do on timeout? Exit? Then what's the point of smsd?

The whole idea of smsd does not make sense if you can "disable" smsd
just by running minicom or kermit and forgetting to exit it. Do not
mess with the locking but follow Daniele's advice and disable locking
altogether if it works for you.
