  A thought just occurred to me about that com3 code that
inserts the address for com3 into com1, etc. Does that
insert the address into the space that only QB uses for com
addressing? In other words, is that only fooling QB into
using that address, or does it affect how other programs
address the ports. If it only POKEs the value into the area
where QB gets it's address info, then I can see how that
would be a legitimate fix. If it POKEs the address into
normal system areas, then I'd still be nervous...
