Every time I initially connect to the serial port on my Uno I see several (sometimes many) garbage characters trickling onto my screen. Once I start typing they go away so up until now they haven't been a problem. Now my project is maturing they are getting in the way (machine to machine comms is much less forgiving of such things).
Is this something others see as well? Any solutions out there? Could this be some sort of serial settings discovery thing?
I'm using the 'Serial' library on an Uno.
