           Summary: Wine doesn't seem to recognize serial port
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.32.
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-misc
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: jra at febo.com

I have a serial device that shows up on /dev/ttyUSB0.  I can access it with no
problems using linux tools.

I've created a symlink "ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 com3" in dosdevices.  And, I've
changed the device permissions on /dev/ttyUSB0 to 0666 to avoid any problems there.

However, applications under wine don't seem to see the serial port.  The
application I want to use is fairly obscure, so I tested with Hyperterm. 
Hyperterm starts fine, but it will only attempt to create a Winsock connection;
it doesn't recognize any serial ports on the system.

The system, by the way, is Ubuntu 06.10 with an updated wine.

Any ideas?
