I suspect the /LINES/DIRECT/NO-WAIT combination does not work as you would expect. It does not really wait for the end of the line to return something. It's probably better to avoid /LINES in this case and look out for the newline character yourself. (You copy from the port, and append to a buffer; then search for the newline char in the buffer and if there is one grab the line.) Maybe this could be reported as a bug (it would be nice if it worked how you were expecting it to)... but, I don't think you'd want to wait for a R2 update. :-)
