Yes, I did that, and the initial results using ZOC led me to believe the loopback was not working.

Follow up: my initial results were incorrect - the loopback test definitely works, so for now I have to conclude wp34sflash is not compatible with the Prolific device.

Just guessing, I'm afraid.

I believe your "guess" is 100% correct.
