I might be joining this discussion late, and couldn't immediately see to 
which message in the digest you included which message you might be 
responding to.  But...

I use CHIRP for my UV-5RE+ radios.

I notice that when the radio 'breaks squelch' on receive during a 
'cloning' transfer (either up or down), that the serial transfer is 
usually aborted.  I account this as a Baofeng problems, not a CHIRP one.

I use a FTDI USB-to-Serial cable (from 3 Old Crows) without problems.  I 
quickly gave up on the (probably counterfet) Prolific-branded cable that 
came with the radio kit I purchased.

Have you looked at http://www.miklor.com/uv5r/ and in particular at 
http://www.miklor.com/uv5r/UV5R-ErrorMess.php to see if your (or a 
similar) problem is discussed?

What, exactly, is not working for you?
