Summary0003170: Rig Control sometimes shows duplicate COM ports
DescriptionI've been migrating the Rig Control code to use a faster, more reliable COM port enumeration function. The new enumeration works great, it's much faster. It's capable of enumerating all devices that are configured, or enumerating only the devices configured and also actually connected to the machine.

Unfortunately, that's backward in a few spots. For example, in the Rig Control's main connect dialog, the drop-down for the COM port on a new connection include all configured COM devices, when it should only show those that are actually connected.

This problem also exists in a few other spots -- WinKeyer connection dialog, ATU connection dialog, and so on. The Virtual 3rd Party config dialog is one place where we must list all devices, not just those connected, as virtual devices don't have a connected state that perfectly matches our context.

Steps To Reproduce1) Fire up Rig Control
2) In the connect dialog, drop down the list of available COM ports

BUG#1) It probably includes duplicate names -- the same COM port number is listed multiple times.

Validated (though I wonder if this caused a removal of a valid COM port that is now the cause of my "Encountered an improper argument" error when launching Rig Control.
