           Summary: wine ignores [serialports] in config
           Product: Wine
           Version: 20040716
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-misc
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: c.j.bainbridge at ed.ac.uk

According to the docs and config file, this should work: 
"Com1" = "/dev/ttyS0" 
"Com2" = "/dev/ttyS1" 
"Com3" = "/dev/ttyS2" 
"Com4" = "/dev/modem" 
"Com5" = "/dev/serial,19200" 
"Com8" = "/dev/serial2" 
But get_dos_device doesn't appear to use this information. Instead it looks 
in .wine/dosdevices. So either the manual and config should be updated to say 
"use dosdevices directory for setting up serial ports" and an error should be 
generated on parsing [serialports] section, or else serialports in config 
should work, or else the config file and manual should be clear about what the 
difference is between putting stuff in config file versus dosdevices directory 
(I've read them, and still don't know what the difference is supposed to be).
