The "Approved?" way to do this is to use the CommsTool Box
to handle your serial port connections rather than making
direct calls to the serial driver. The CommsTool Box can create a
"Virtual Serial Port, called the "Data Port." Simply make sure
that your user selects the "Data Port," in the preferences of all
applications that want to use the same port, then let the
system software handle all the switching back and forth between apps
and the serial port.

Hope this helps,
