Thanks; it indeed was.Does everyone using an external power source experience this? In other words, is it a known and confirmed "bug"? Another question: Would it hurt to keep RX and TX connected to each other all the time I don't use them, to work around this?
that would be a bad idea to connect them together, as you would possibly damage both the USB chip and the Atmega, since when the Atmega TX is low the USB TX could drive current into it, and vice-versa
I haven't tried 0009 so far, since there's no Linux release, and I've been reluctant to compile from CVS. I'll take a look now.
