[Tinyos-help] TOS_Msg length is invalid

Under T1 at least the micaz message that comes over the serial line
has been converted to a mica2 format by TOSBase.  This puts the header
fields in the 'wrong' places. Try -comm serial@/dev/ttyS0:mica2
or setting the MOTECOM env variable like that.

might work...
