I've seen dropped RX characters on the LPC2292.  

The default 16x5x driver does some register probing to try to figure out
which specific device it's got.  However, on the LPC, one of those tests
was failing, so it was deciding that it was a simpleminded UART, and not
enabling the RX FIFO.

There was a fix posted on this list last week - look at the " Half
Duplex RS485" thread.
