Can't get "LOGS" command to work in CLI

I did my first flight of my ArduCopter 2 with APM 1.0 last week (after a 9 month off and on build with my son).

It all went pretty well, only a few broken blades, but it did stabilize pretty well.

To help analyze things, I am trying to get the logs to work, but the MP (v1.1.16) locks up whenever I click on "Log Download" or type "logs" in the CLI. I am using 2.1.0 Alpha. I can seem to do everything else in the CLI, tests, motors command, radio, etc, and I have the CLI switch set to the left, toward the pins. attached is a screen shot showing what happens. I get a "Comport thread close" and then I can't do anymore commands. 

I tried the same thing using CoolTerm, and "logs" command does the same thing in that terminal window as well.

Any ideas?
