We get a lot of data from serial port to pd and for this direction [comport] 
works in the asynchronous mode. In the transmitting mode, we send a few bytes 
only, so we did not any tests...

I don't remember if I've changed anything in the transmitting section of the 
code - I'll have a look ASAP.

Can you send me your stress-the-comport patch per email? I'll give it a try...

br, Piotr
