pblq does ping the board with a get-version packet after the handshake's
complete, and wait for the result, so that shouldn't be the problem...
I suspect the major culprit is probably the bit of code that tries to be
clever and changes the baud rate after handshaking. The E3 uses a different
default baud rate, IIRC.
Unfortunately I don't have an E3, and I've just moved house and my E2 and
interface board is somewhere in a box, so I probably won't be doing much
development for a while...
