I'm guessing there is a solution to this on Linux, though I've not seen
that behaviour myself on Lubuntu.
Under Windows (sory.)
Go read the Fldigi Wiki article re "taming the wild com port!" Under the
HowTo section. You can nail any USB<>Serial device's feet to the ground
so they don't move about. Easy to do too no extra software or tools
needed. Read the WiKi, it (and a lot more help) is all there.
