Well I would call it a bug if a single instance of the IDE reset comm ports other then the single select comm port selected.

you asked: Do you have one or two IDE's ?

I started one IDE, then opened another sketch in a new window. I call that one IDE with two windows opened.

OK,

Try to start two IDE's by doubleclicking two different .pde files and check if the problem still occurs.

That's what it does. I have one sketch open fiddling with one board.

The other board is connected but not being used by any instances of the IDE.

Not sure if it always does this or just on occasion but I think it always does it.
Today it seemed to 'half reset' my board too. The music was still playing from where it was (will only stop when arduino is restarted - as long as the rMP3 has power it will keep playing) but the LCD displaying the visualiser froze. I had to reset the board to get the LCD to start working again.

I will look into it more when I get the chance (and I remember :P)

Well, I tried it again. This time I connected both USB cables and then opened one IDE window. It reset both micro boards once at this point.

I selected the USB for the Duemilanove and loaded a sketch for that target. Both boards reset again.

So I compiled and loaded the sketch to the '2009' board. Then I clicked on the 'Serial Monitor' icon. It  reset both boards again.

So it has nothing to do with having multiple IDEs or multiple sketches opened at the same time.

Maybe it is in the version of AVRdude or some other low level piece of the system.

I use one '2009' to test the other '2009' and every time this reset buggers up the tests.
