Wow! truss is quite handy.
I've located the problem, and am posting it for posterity:
Someone was memset()'ing the termios struct to zero's, then setting
the baudrate (setcfspeed) and a couple other things. Apparently this
was not a canonical set of required members of the struct, because
adding a tcgetattr(f, termio) right after the memset apparently
pre-populated the thing correctly and now it works fine...
Thanks for the leg up, Jeremy.
