PCMCIA Silicom dual serial port problem

I can't get a PCMCIA Silicom Dual RS-232 serial port card to work.

Module serial_cs is loaded and dmesg says:

ttyS18 at 0x0110 (irq =5) is a 16550A
ttyS19 at 0x0118 (irq =5) is a 16550A

So far okay?

echo test > /dev/ttyS18 gives output on first port on the card,

echo test > /dev/ttyS19 however also on the first port!!

The second port seems 'dead': no signals active at all (with LED tester)

Is module serial_cs actually suitable? Extra parameters needed?

the card is mentioned in /etc/pcmcia/config
card "Silicom 2S100 Dual Serial"
manfid 0x0089, 0x0301
bind "serial_cs"
