I don't recall seeing any reports like this before.
Are you using a USB-to-Serial adapter? If so, and if that adapter is based
on the "Prolific" chipset, perhaps that is the problem. These devices are
notoriously unreliable. Perhaps new drivers will help, or a new
USB-to-Serial interface based on the FTDI chipset.
Also, what was happening on VFO B at the time?
I assume that you are using the Win-Test FT-1000MP defaults: 4800,N,8,2
DTR/RTS = Always OFF.
