[time-nuts] Lady Heather question serial error

Thanks much for getting my head on straight.
I bought(ugh) a standard rs232 9 pin cable and part of the problem left me.
I was using a Belkin usb to serial adapter(f5u109) but it still gave me a
problem. Switching to a Hawking(h-uc232s) adapter and reloading the drivers
caused all the problems to go in hiding. Initially the hawking made my
system think it was a mouse when the thunderbolt was attached.
Its been running for a couple of hours now and seems to have settled down.

Hmm. No, I have no idea what would do that. :( There's some sort of
handshaking incompatibility, it sounds like. Try a fully-populated serial
cable, just to see if it makes a difference.
