My reading is that the GPS is already at the "right" speed.  It's the serial 
port that needs fixing.  That seems to be confirmed by your stty example.

Does gpsd try with the current/initial serial port speed before it starts 
scanning other speeds?

I like the "leave it alone" approach.  I use gpsmon to switch between binary 
and text/NMEA so other hacks don't have to mess with that stuff.  No big deal.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
