Yes that accounts for the "open" message which would come from 
[comport]'s right outlet.

But there are other messages sent by the arduino, such as the ones 
reporting the firmware version, which are being lost.

I've found out that if I send the arduino the "version" message, then 
these messages _are_ received (also in Windows), while when the Arduino 
send them just after connecting, they are lost in Windows.

So I think there must be an issue either in the Windows version of 
[comport] or in the Windows drivers, that if a message is received too 
soon after connecting, it is lost.
