[chirp_users] Chirp Data transfer

I tried turning off the FIFO buffers on my main computer, and using 
the real 9 pin serial cable on Com 1, I got the following in the bedug 
file:

Log initialized
Clone thread started
000: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........

-- Exception: --
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "chirpui\clone.pyo", line 217, in run
   File "chirp\yaesu_clone.pyo", line 178, in sync_in
   File "chirp\yaesu_clone.pyo", line 69, in clone_in
   File "chirp\yaesu_clone.pyo", line 44, in chunk_read
   File "serial\serialwin32.pyo", line 212, in read
CloneCancelledException
------
Clone failed:
Clone thread ended


That is slightly different than the one on the laptop with the USB 
cable, but not much.  Again it is progress over just "Log initialized".


Thanks.

73,
