I feel pretty sure is not a cable problem, it is a protocol problem!
Good to know that the 817 raise an error.
At the end of the clone in operation the radio is expected to play a 
"happy beep" and go back to the clone menu.

Please keep in mind this golden rule: if the clone operation from radio 
is not perfect don't even think to clone back!

This is because chirp didn't saw any problem in the clone operation, may 
be the radio sends a packet more than expected.

I'm going to investigate the log you sent, will let you know.
