Yes, it is.  Its now driving me mad.  I have to go to my day job now
where I'll be writing Java code, and I'm not happy about that.... but
its better than the Windows serial port APIs!

Maybe drugs will help me to get the code right... after all, the folks
who designed and implemented these APIs in Windows must have been on
drugs too when they did this!

I'd be on 100% UNIX (Linux) in a heartbeat if I could.  Unfortuantely,
I think some nodes will need serial port IO on Windows.  :-(

At least the Linux developers don't work when their high on crack!
