All very interesting points Luc which make a lot of sense when explaining the observed behaviour.

Re point 6. Normally I would agree with you, however... having a Dispose method would imply that a port couldn't/shouldn't be reused after disposal. All ports need to be reusable from anywhere (hence the Manager class to retrieve the same instance from at any time) until they are definately finished with i.e. at application exit, therefore I feel that having a 'Dispose' method would be confusing and counter intuitive to the consumer of the library as i don't actually want to dispose of anything and nothing is being actually disposed. I just want the ports to be correctly closed. To this end I have provided a Close method for each port, and a helper CloseAll in the port Manager.

Any comments on this (and anything) will be most welcome.

I'm about to study that article right now Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
