Opening a serial port in use causes the program to crash #133
The original Putty 0.63 displays a window telling you that COMx is currently in use when you have another program or session using that port.
This issue happens all the time on Win8.1-x64 with a USB FTDI chipset device.
I knew that would go wrong. Dammit. Re-review that code for possible horrors. I'm still not happy with backhandle possibly being junk, but nothing should really get far enough to notice (famous last words). Still going with it being better to run stuff, than to not run it.
