I have to take back what I said earlier about SerialPort working
without problems. The binary helper has a small mistake that causes it
to throw TimeoutException prematurely when EINTR is issued. I have
updated the bug (http://bugzilla.ximian.com/show_bug.cgi?id=79073) and
provided a patch. Could the maintainer inspect the patch and commit
