[PD] [comport] crashes on Windows

I have incorporated the "OVERLAPPED" asynchronous mode code for
Windows from Piotr Majdak in the [comport], and now it crashes pretty
regularly. I just committed the comport-stress-test.pd, which makes
Pd crash within a couple minutes. It seems to be caused by
transferring a lot of data from Pd to the serial port. FYI: I am
using an Arduino to test.
I did a little test to see whether its the new code, or whether there
were crashes before. So I compiled revision 1.10, which uses the
standard synchronous mode for data transfer. This version seems to
last a bit longer, but it crashes in a much uglier way: it zombies Pd
and doesn't let go of the serial port. So its an improvement, but
still, it crashes a lot.
Any of you Windows hackers want to take a stab? I am going to test
things on Mac OS X now.
