Um ... I must have a different definition of the work "many" ... :-))

Thanks Ed,

That wasn't quite it, but it was enough of a hint to get me there - all
I had to do was hit SHIFT-6 - this toggles the Aux port instead of the
TX port (I could have sworn I tried that ... but it worked this time).

Also find and fixed a cold solder joint on a connector that was causing
the terminal to be intermittant (It was partially disassembled when I
got it - sombody must have been searching for it before).
