summary: Serial backend on Windows hangs on simultaneous input/output
class: bug: This is clearly an actual problem we want fixed.
present-in: 0.60

PuTTY 0.60 for Windows can lock up when using the serial backend and there is simultaneous input and output.

For instance, doing more /var/adm/messages to a Unix system and pressing and holding 'j' to scroll is reported to be sufficient to cause the session to lock up.
