Confirmed this fixes it - old version of avrdude had the bug, newly checked out CVS did not. Cha-Ching.

I've chosen a different way to fix it than in the suggested

Eric, please close the bug after verifying it really does the
job -- but I'm pretty positive it does, after reading the
MSDN documentation for ReadFile().

Eric, curious, since you uploaded a patch, I assume this means
you've already tested it? That would be great, I could only
have fixed it blindly myself.

It turns out the variable "len" which is used to control the
loop is never assigned.

Good item to demonstrate why you'd rather not blindly
initialize all local variables by default in their definition,

static int ser_recv(union filedescriptor fd, unsigned char buf, size_t buflen)
unsigned char c;
unsigned char * p = buf;
size_t len = 0;
