Submit a fix to the source code, with a test that works on Windows that
shows the intended behavior.

Serial port bugs require a developer to find a serial cable, a serial
device and reproduce the bug, which just happens to be uncommon these
days so those bugs tend to stay there for very long periods of time.

Your best bet is to submit a patch with the fix, or to hire one of the
various fine consultants that have experience in Mono and can fix this
bug for you.
