[chirp_users] Cannot Upload to Yausu VX-6

My USB to Yaesu VX-6 transceiver cable uses the FTDI chip. The driver I use is the Mac OS X FTDIUSBSerial driver for FTDI's FT2232C, FT232BM, FT245BM, FT8U232AM and FT8U245AM devices from FTDI.

The issue defined below was helpful. Following is excerpted from: MAC OSX 10.9.1 Yaesu VX-7R Upload Fails
Again, chirp itself should not "freeze" or lockup your computer. It might crash or lockup chirp the program, but if your entire computer is locked up, chances are, this is a bug or bad design with the hardware driver. (Usually only hardware or hardware drivers can make the whole OS unstable). 

Like the Redmine issue report above states the driver is at fault and not CHIRP. That is good to know.

CHRIP totally locks up (only recovery is Force Quit Application) approximately one-third of the upload. Additionally all of my manually entered Yausu VX-6 memory settings are wiped out after the CHIRP upload attempt, except for one entry.
