Nothing is even coming out from [comport] when the connection is 
established (in Windows)!! (but it does print things when data messages 
are received, such as digital pin data)

It's as if the arduino itself was actually behaving differently on 
different platforms...

or maybe [comport]. But why would [comport] drop some specific messages? 
It doesn't even know about "messages", right? It only sees incoming 
bytes, doesn't it?

I thought I would post the output from [comport] when connecting the 
arduino, on Windows and on Linux, but it is not always the same. Even if 
"open"ing a freshly reset arduino (i.e. just after connecting it to the 
usb port, and without any extra circuitry), the output from [comport] is 
not always the same.

Furthermore, it seems it is sending digital pin data messages (which may 
happen randomly since no pin is connected to anything) even if it has 
never received any "pìnMode" message. Is that expected behavior?

And occasionally I get an UNKNOWN_INPUT_COMMAND: 1 505
