This was only a little knowing my way around.  It was really pretty
basic debugging.

The code was hanging in read.  So, I set a breakpoint in readv, which,
on code inspection, is what read calls.  Single stepping along, I came
to the function that was hanging.  Tracing that along I came to the
Windows API function that was hanging.  Realizing that this function
obviously wasn't supposed to be hanging, I theorized that the com port
wasn't being opened properly.  So, I set a breakpoint on
fhandler_serial::open and notice nothing special there.  Then I noticed
that fhandler_serial::open calls fhandler_base::open.  I noticed that
fhandler_base::open has special serial considerations.  Stepping over
those, I saw they weren't being exercised.  So I fixed that using the
same technique you used here:
