Insight hangs when opening the "Target Settings" window.

It seems that the problem is located the function itcl::body TargetSelection::port_list in file targetselection.itb. My PC has only one COM port. When searching for COM port 2 to 4, Insight hangs. 

I changed the search loop as follows, allowing quitting the loop after 1 port instead of 4 in the original code. With that change, it runs fine.

  for {set i 1} {!$quit} {incr i} {
    if {[catch { set fd [::open COM$i: RDWR] } msg]} {
      # Failed.  Find out why.
      if {[string first "permission denied" $msg] != -1} {
	# Port is there, but busy right now. That's OK.
	lappend plist /dev/com$i
      } elseif {$i > 1} {
	# if we've scanned the first 1 ports, then quit when we find no more 
	set quit 1
    } else {
      # We got it.  Now close it and add to list.
      close $fd
      lappend plist /dev/com$i
