Is this your "modified" driver?

I don't see that error in the kernel log below at all.

What kernel version is this?

And are you sure that your device actually has the RTS lines connected?
I have seen a number of these devices that do not bring those lines from
the chip to the rs232 connection.

You really might want to go purchase a "real" usb to serial converter
that works properly, the pl2303 devices do not fit that category.

good luck,
