While I appeciate this has all been a PITA for you, I cannot help
feeling relieved that this was not a problem with the STM32 serial
drivers itself :-/

If nothing else, this has provided a useful pointer to why things
might not be working for others in the future. Virtual environments
are becoming more common, but it is clear that they leave something to
be desired in the area of real time behaviour (as one would expect, to
be fair).
