I do not know if this is  a quick hack, but it works for me:

Go into the chirp/ subdirectory, and edit a file called uvb5.py
Add this line above the line that says "radio.pipe.write("PROGRAM")"
temp = radio.pipe.read(1)

Hope that the "new" UV-B5 will be fixed in chirp.

Also a small thing that I noticed.
On UV-R5 and BF-F8HP the radio frequency is ignored.
(Eg. you specify a value, you store to the radio, and it takes the default value instead of the one specified in the image)
