Yes. If I turn off HW handshaking GtkTerm can not keep up with 4800
baud. With HW handshaking it can do 19200 with no problems (which is the
max I can do with this configuration today) and I can see my
microcontroller waiting on the serial port with its debugger, which
happens only when the output buffer is full. However when I only change
the GtkTerm display from ASCII to HEX it overruns the buffer.

It is a very simple button to select. It is easy to turn on and off.
Easy to see the current state.

I get a gtkterm segfault ... error 4
Which is probably the buffer overflow.
