On Linux using a serial cable cable that works under MacOS and Linux (on this same machine using original WLN software)

I have successful read this radio using this cable on a separate MacOS machine using and older version of Chirp
I have successfully read this radio on this same Linux machine using the same programming cable using the 409shop programming software

Using the 20191029 daily build I'm getting "Unexpected error communicating with the radio" radio dialog

I have also successfully used this cable to read from a Baofeng UV-5R using the daily 20191029 software on this same Linux hardware

I can confirm that this defect exists in CHIRP daily-20200718 as well, same behavior.
