[PD] comport rxerrors on W10

thx Iohannes for looking into it.

what i do to test it:

in PD: [comport 3 9600] - [print]

in Arduino:
in setup:Serial.begin(9600)
in loop: Serial.println("z"); delay(3000);

more simple it cannot be, i thought.

using the serial monitor of the Arduino IDE the z's are printed.

Pd gives the RXerrors (10 of them).

when i unplug the cable there's no reaction from [comport].

when i do [close( the following 3 lines are printed:

[comport] ** ERROR ** couldn't reset params to DCB of device COM3

[comport] Couldn't reset old_timeouts for serial device
[comport] closed COM3

i'm not sure what this should tell me.
my reasoning is that when my virtual XP doesn't have this problem,
it's the combination of [comport] & W10 at fault.

(the Arduino on it's own IDE works fine:
driver and hardware are apparantly ok).

so your host is Debian, mine is W10.
which tells what?


PS i installed a fresh copy of Pd-ext 43.4
