Description Dan Smith 2014-06-04 14:26:19 UTC
When a write to a Serial Port fails, Mono throws a TimeoutException, regardless of the cause of the reason the write failure.  

The source code identifies the error, however, it does not appear to be tracked in Bugzilla:

public override void Write (byte[] buffer, int offset, int count)
  CheckDisposed ();
  if (buffer == null)
    throw new ArgumentNullException ("buffer");

  if (offset < 0 || count < 0)
    throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException ();

  if (buffer.Length - offset < count)
    throw new ArgumentException ("offset+count",
     "The size of the buffer is less than offset + count.");

  // FIXME: this reports every write error as timeout
  if (write_serial (fd, buffer, offset, count, write_timeout) < 0)
    throw new TimeoutException("The operation has timed-out");
