[pyserial - winXP] Serial port stop receiving data after a few hours, raise no error

Hello,

My soft passively listen to a device sending +- 300 bytes of data each
second. After several hours of work, the soft abruptly stops receiving
data without any error, (while the device sends properly, of course)
and I need to restart it (the python soft) to "reactivate " the ports.

I read that when the serial port encounters an error (frame error or
so, I imagine?) it stop receiving data until the library function
"getCommError() " is called.

Am I on the good track? Can I call this function from my pyserial
code?

Why pyserial does'nt raise a serial.SerialEx ception in this case?
Notes:
---------
I'm not working with plain serial ports, I use serial over USB (FTDI
or so) and serial over Ethernet (moxa.com).
I'm in 115k 8N1 and I use 4 ports simultaneously
I use python 2.4 with pyserial 2.2 on Windows XP.
TIA,
Paul André

I think you are right

Troels:
Well , you have the source, don't you ?
The serial lib has a handle somwhere.
Call getCommError with that ? Or ?

ooooh! - I am not sure of this, but I have heard rumours that
the USB drivers are responsible...

Its unlikely to be the Python - so far when I have had Serial
Hassles - its been either finger trouble on my part, or some
underlying thing freaking out - four ports at 115200
means a char potentially every 21 microsecs - not quite trivial.
