Hi again!

First of all. Thanks for taking interest in my problems!

--I added 0.5 instead of 16/32 is that ok too? :) --

So what now?
I am probably not getting exactly 115200. The reason your soultion works for
you Greg and not for me could be that the other side of our systems have
baud rate errors in opposite directions, right? Your's to your advantage and
my to my disadvantage. But what do I know? I'm just a happy amateur!

At least your fix made it possible to run my system in 57600Bps and that's
good enough! Thanks!! I'm dropping this now, but many thanks again.

Happy hacking guys!
