APM 2.5 + MP USB connections problems SOLVED

I'm not sure where to post this info, so I'll start here, and move it elsewhere as needed.

I managed to compile Mission Planner from the source repository and fix the bug with APM 2.5 not connecting consistently.

For anyone interested, here is the solution...

//@line 328 of the file 'Mavlink.cs',

//within the 'OpenBG' function:


//change to...


So, increasing the thread sleep timeout fixes the problem. I'm now able to connect 100% of the time via USB. I guess the next step is to alert a developer and have someone fix this in the release version? Can anyone help me out with this?

feedback is welcome...
