: I would expect that the problem is identical in the sense that with a

: So, yes, I would expect this behaviour based on the track record.
: Should it happen? The answer is no. File a PR?
: Also, I'd like to know what USB serial adapter you're using (brand,

That's odd, because I use an FTDI based serial device all the time for
hacking on embedded systems. The problem that I have is 100% CPU
usage on a tip process until I kill it.
