but does not download from radio with my FT60R (with a different cable, 
of course.  ExpertPower although in Win7 it says Prolific)

Here are the conditions running under a Ubuntu derivative OS (Zorin).

chirp Daily-20120111
GTK 2.24.4
PyGTK 2.22.0
Python 2.7.1+

And the debug log last entry is

User selected Yaesu FT-60 on port /dev/ttyUSB0

Beats me...acts like the magic word isn't recognized by the radio. Or 
the brand new cable is B/O.
